Obeying Jesus (5 of 7) / by David Flowers

Sermon Series:  Obeying Jesus: 7 Commands for Every Disciple
Sermon Title:  Thy Kingdom Come (5 of 7)
Scripture Reading:  Matthew 6:5-15; Luke 18:9-14; Mark 1:35

In his last moments on earth with his core disciples, Jesus said, “Go and make disciples… teaching them to obey all that I have commanded.” So, what are these commands that sincere, authentic followers of Jesus should be obeying? In our Obeying Jesus: 7 Commands for Every Disciple series, we will look closely at the teachings and practices that Jesus said are basic and foundational to faithfully following him. 

The disciples observed that Jesus prayed a lot. They also heard Jesus critique the prayers of the Pharisees and their pious prayers. Naturally, they ask Jesus to teach them how to pray. So Jesus tells them the way they should pray is to be supremely concerned for God’s Kingdom to come.

In Thy Kingdom Come (5 of 7), pastor David helps us to see how Jesus frames all of prayer as a cry for Kingdom. Listen to David and view the slides here.
