The Lord's Prayer

THE LORDS PRAYER ---ST. JOHN 17

THIS LESSON IS NOT A DECEPTIVE TITLE.   IT IS ALSO NOT A STUDY OF MATT 6 AND LUKE 11 "OUR FATHER...", BUT WHAT I LIKE TO CONSIDER CHRIST'S PRAYER TO OUR FATHER BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN. THE LOVE SHOWN BY CHRIST IN THESE VERSES RENDS MY HEART.

WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT THAT SALVATION IS A FREE GIFT, BUT IS IT? NO!

CHRIST PAID AN AWESOME PRICE FOR OUR SALVATION. AND FOR US TO LIGHTLY ESTEEM IT WITH A WORD LIKE THE WORLDS' MEANING OF THE WORD "FREE-- COME AMD GET YOUR FREE GIFT" HAS TO ME A POOR INTERPRETATION.

AS WORSHIPPERS OF GOD THROUGH CHRIST WE NEED TO MAKE OUR MEANING PLAIN. I BELIEVE MANY TEACHERS FACED THIS SAME SITUATION--PAUL DID-- 1 COR 1:23

HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT IN DEPTH ABOUT THE MEANING OF THE DEATH OF CHRIST IN THE FLESH, AND WHY IT HAD TO BE?

WE WILL SEE AT LEAST FOUR REASONS WHY CHRIST HAD TO DIE

1) FOR FULFILLMENT OF PROPHECY IN THAT HE BECAME OUR PASSOVER OFFERING FOREVER

GEN 3:21, EX 12, LEV 1, ETC -- 1 COR 5:7

2) HIS RESURRECTION IS THE BASIS OF OUR FAITH, AND THE MEANS BY WHICH WE OBTAIN EVERLASTING LIFE --- 1 THES 4:13-14 1 COR 15:12-20 & 29 & 50-52

3) SO THAT HE COULD DESTROY SATAN IN THE END (REV 20:10)-- HEB 2:14

4) SO THAT BY HIS DEATH WE HAVE OUR SALVATION -- 2 COR 13:4-- GAL 2:20

5) SO THAT WE ARE THE INHERITORS OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS-- HEB 9:15-17

MOST EVERYONE HAS A WILL- THE WILLS OF ANY ONE ARE NOT FINAL UNTIL DEATH

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT-- NEW COVENANT SEALED IN HIS DEATH

ST. JOHN 17-- DID YOU REALIZE THAT THIS IS CHRIST'S LAST WILL FOR US,

AND WRITTEN DOWN BY JOHN IN CHRIST'S OWN WORDS?

PLEASE READ VERSE BY VERSE---- ST JOHN 17

WE BECOME PARTAKERS BY GRACE--THROUGH FAITH -- EPH 2:8

WE ARE HEIRS-- EPH 3:6--COL 1:12-- HEB 3:14-- 1 PET 5:1-- 2 PET 1:4

REV 21:7--- THE WILL IS CONSUMATED AND FULFILLED
