Sermon on the Mount: God’s Holiness in Prayer

9“This, then, is how you should pray:

“ ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11Give us today our daily bread. 12And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. ’ ~Matthew 6

You ought to pray

Every day

You ought to say

‘Father, hollowed be Your name!’

And when you offer up

These words of praise

These words of longing

Live it out in your own life

Live out the glory of Christ

Oh, LORD, may You holy name be

Considered holy

Today.

.

When you pray

Today

Remember the holiness of the LORD

How great His works

How mighty His wonders!

Remember the holiness of the LORD

Today

When you pray

.

The LORD

He will be honored

The LORD

He will be glorified

Let not

Your words turn to slander

Let not

Your mind be seared

Offer up what is pleasing

Lest the LORD be driven to defend

His honor

Offer up in your heart what is pleasing

Lest it drive unbelievers to profanity

Let it not be said of us

Let it not be said of us

.

Who is like the LORD?

Who can compare to His faithfulness?

Every promise He ever made

He has kept.

His honor He will defend

His love He lavishes on us.

His kingdom lasts forever

As He is not shaken

Neither shall we be then.

“6For who in the skies can be compared to the Lord? Who among the heavenly beings is like the Lord, 7a God greatly to be feared in the council of the holy ones, and awesome above all who are around him? 8 O Lord God of hosts, who is mighty as you are, O Lord, with your faithfulness all around you?” ~Psalm 89

“17Now you, if you call yourself a Jew; if you rely on the law and boast in God; 18if you know his will and approve of what is superior because you are instructed by the law; 19if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark, 20an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of little children, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth— 21you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal? 22You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? 23You who boast in the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law? 24As it is written: “God’s name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.” ~Romans 2

Matthew 23:9

“And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.”

“1Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihu took their censers, put fire in them and added incense; and they offered unauthorized fire before the Lord, contrary to his command. 2So fire came out from the presence of the Lord and consumed them, and they died before the Lord. 3Moses then said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord spoke of when he said:“ ‘Among those who approach me I will be proved holy; in the sight of all the people I will be honored.’ ” Aaron remained silent.” ~Leviticus 10

James 4:11

“Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.”

Psalm 101:5

“Whoever slanders his neighbor secretly I will destroy. Whoever has a haughty look and an arrogant heart I will not endure.”

“28Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, 29for our God is a consuming fire.” ~Hebrews 12
