THINK ON THESE THINGS - THURSDAY

DYNAMITE....part 2!


Why the explosive headline? Well, we get the word DYNAMITE from the Greek word Jesus used in the Gospel for POWER. This word is "Dunamis". 


The final phrase of the LORD's PRAYER is Power Worship like you never believe! This is the reason, we are not just going slow on it's meaning, but drawing out the Substance Christ intended when He taught His disciples (then and now) HOW to prayer.


Matthew 6: 8-13:
Our Father in heaven,
      Hallowed be Your name.
      Your kingdom come.
      Your will be done
      On earth as it is in heaven.
      Give us this day our daily bread.
   And forgive us our debts,
      As we forgive our debtors.
    And do not lead us into temptation,
      But deliver us from the evil one.
      For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

This dynamite phrase from Jesus shows the tremendous magnitude and awe-inspiring God we serve. He laid out the Characteristics and attributes of the Kingdom seriatim, for a reason. Christ wants us to know just how powerful the Kingdom (discussed yesterday) REALLY IS!

If we really want to know the true Power of God, all we have to do is look outside our doors! But it is more that that. Dunamis means ALL of the following:  physical power, force, ability, energy....and then it means His powerful deeds...or His marvelous works and more!


Can we even fathom the Mighty and the Power of the Holy God to Whom we pray?! NO! But we press on! Join in now, in the Worship of the Mighty God we serve! First, here is how we pray this second part of this phrase:


THE POWER: Lord All Power, Glory and Honor are Yours. The entire creation story in Job 38-41 reveals just how full of Awe and Might You really are. No one has an Arm like You. No one thunders His Voice like you. At the sound of Your Voices, the pillars of the Temple shook, the thunder reports to You and the seas remain still. Truly, truly, truly, Oh Lord of Hosts You slay mighty rulers, You bring down kingdoms, give grace to the humble and resist the proud. Thank You for who You are; for saving me; for allowing me into Your Presence and one day – Your Kingdom forever. All glory, laud and honor be to Thee Redeemer King, In Jesus’ Name, let it be done. Amen
