The Lord's Prayer - part 2

"When ye pray, say Our Father."  Luke 11.2.

MB 103  "Jesus teaches us to call His Father our Father.  He is not ashamed to call us brethren.  Hebrews 2:11.  So ready, so eager, is the Savior's heart to welcome us as members of the family of God, that in the very first words we are to use in approaching God He places the assurance of our divine relationship, 'Our Father.'  Here is the announcement of that wonderful truth, so full of encouragement and comfort, that God loves us as He loves His Son. This is what Jesus said in His last prayer for His disciples, 'Thou has loved them as Thou as loved Me."  John 17:23.
      The world that Satan has claimed and has ruled over with cruel tyranny, the Son of God has, by one vast achievement, encircled in His love and connected again with the throne of Jehovah. Cherubim and Seraphim, and the unnumbered host of all the unfallen worlds, sang anthems of praise to God and the Lamb when this triumph was assured.  They rejoiced that the way of salvation had been opened to the fallen race and that the earth would be redeemed from the curse of sin.  How much more should those rejoice who are the objects of such amazing love!

Are we rejoicing today for the privilege of being redeemed from the curse of sin in this world and are objects of such amazing love?  We should be shouldn't we?  Grandma Joan
