THE EASY TO UNDERSTAND,
LORD'S PRAYER, PAGE By JOHN
Mathew 6:9 "In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven, Who are we to prayer to? The true, best, and
only perfect Father, God the Father Himself!
In what ways is God a father?
1. By creation; He has made us (humankind).
Cf. Mal. 2: 10 Have we not all one father? hath
not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously
every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?
Acts That they should seek the Lord, if haply
they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your
own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
2. By saving us, helping become born-again. Cf. 1
john 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin;
for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin,
because he is born of God.
3. By being the Father of God the Son (Jesus Christ). Cf. John 20: 31 But
these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of
God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. Prov. 8:22-23 22 The LORD possessed me in the
beginning of his way, before his works of old.
23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
Gal. 4: 6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth
the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
What makes God the Father, a father to the Christian?
Faith, itself! Cf. Gal. For
ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Faith in the Work of Christ. Cf. Hebrews 2:11-13. 11
For both he that sanctifieth and they who are
sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them
12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church
will I sing praise unto thee.
13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children
which God hath given me.
How is God the Father, the best Father?
1. He is the most ancient. Cf. Daniel 7: 9 I beheld till the thrones were
cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow,
and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery
flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
2. He is perfect. Cf. Matthew 5: 48 Be ye
therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
3. He is the source of Wisdom. Cf. 1 Tim. 1: 17 Now
unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
4. He is the most loving father. Cf. 1 John And
we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he
that dwelleth in love dwelleth
in God, and God in him.
5. He is the wealthiest father. Cf. Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will
obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar
treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
Psalms 24:1 <>> The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness
thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
Psalms 104:24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in
wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
Eph. 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace
given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of
6. He can reform and make new, His children. Cf. 2 Corinthians Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are
passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Revelation 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said,
Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are
true and faithful.
7. He is a father, who never dies. Cf. 1 Tim. 6: 16 Who only hath
immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man
hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power
Rev. 1: 8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to
come, the Almighty. (God has no beginning, or end. The faithful,
born-again Christian, will live forever, but did have a beginning.)
