[CF Devotionals] 2007-09-22 - The Prayers of Christ

#11 ~ The Lord's Prayer, cont'd.

"For Yours is the kingdom, power and glory, forever and ever, amen." As usual, I prayed for God's words before writing this devotional. And what I believe came to me was to just let God's word sift into people's hearts, with no commentary at all - just focusing on His glory. Passages referring to God's glory are peppered throughout His word.

Revelation 1:6b To him be glory and power forever and ever!

Psalm 8:1 O Lord, our Lord how majestic is Your name in all the Earth! You have set Your glory above the heavens.

Exodus 15:11 Who among the gods is like you, O Lord? Who is like you-majestic in holiness, awesome in glory,working wonders?

Exekiel 10:4 Then the glory of the Lord rose from above the cherubim and moved to the threshold of the temple. The cloud filled the temple, and the court was full of the radiance of the glory of the Lord.

John 1:14 The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

And our response:

Psalm 34:3 Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt God together.

Psalm 69:30 I will praise God's name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving.

Romans 15:6b....Glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Philippians 2:9-11 Therefore God exalted Him (Christ) to the highest place And gave him the name that is above every name, That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, In Heaven and on Earth and under the Earth, And every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, To the glory of God the Father.

"And let the church say amen!"
