Thy Will Be Done / Christian Duty
Thy Will Be Done – The disciples of Jesus came to him one day with a request:
Lord, teach us to pray. Jesus replied with a remarkably concise, model prayer. Everyone knows it by heart—we call it the Lord’s Prayer. Did he give us an outline for prayer and leave it to us to fill in the details? For example:
Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven. Who carries out God’s will here on earth?
Christian Duty – In any age and in any condition, men of God and women of God have serious responsibilities. In sickness or in health, in poverty or in wealth, we have a job to do. Perhaps you don’t think of yourself that way, as a
man of God. But if you take his name upon you, if you are a Christian or a Jew, you are his man, his woman. And you are where you are for his purpose. What is that purpose? What is your duty?
