Saturday, February 27, 2016        Thy Kingdom Come   


Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, Hebrews 12:28

Offer to God acceptable worship. Possible only through grace in Christ, directed only to the triune God, and conducted with respectful wonders. With reverence and awe. Not frivolous, nonchalant, or trivial. God’s presence calls for serious hearing, genuine repentance, and extraordinary joy. See Psalm 2:12[1]

In the Second Petition, we ask God to give us His Holy Spirit so that we believe His Word and lead godly lives as members of His kingdom of grace. [2]

Grant, most merciful Lord, to your faithful people pardon and peace, that they may be cleansed from all their sins, and serve you with a quiet mind; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen[3]
