Longing for the King as His Birth Approaches

Sunday Musings

The Final Question to the Westminster Shorter Catechism is Question 107.

What does the conclusion of the Lord’s Prayer teach us?

Answer:

The conclusion of the Lord’s Prayer, which is,
For thine is the kingdom, and power, and the glory, forever. Amen, teaches us to take our encouragement in prayer from God only, and in our prayers to praise him, ascribing kingdom, power, and glory to him; and, in testimony of our desire, and assurance to be heard, we say,  Amen.

Next week, I begin a series of messages at Trinity Church in Watseka and Ashkum campuses on what and who the child was that was born to Mary and Joseph on the first Christmas. The Series is titled simple, What Child is This? and will include one of the most unique Lord’s Supper experiences of our ministry year on the evenings of December 23/24. Don’t miss any of the messages in the series and try to bring a friend to all of them.

May all your prayers this Sunday sing the praises of God–the same God whose Kingdom is coming with power and glory. And may every corner of your heart say “Amen” to our coming King this Christmas.
