Like Peter, we have to change our conception of God in order to embrace Jesus as Messiah.
Like Peter, we’ve been given a second chance by God and commissioned with the work of tending his sheep.
The good news of Jesus’ birth isn’t just for humans but for the whole created order.
We seek peace in leaders or in traditions and customer, but the peaceable kingdom is available only through Jesus.
In an age of division, the Advent of Jesus brings unity through worship in Spirit and in truth.
We are also dependent on God for our ability to follow him, so we pray daily that he lead and deliver us.
As we pray in God’s will we lift up our need for resources and relationships to him daily.
Praying “your kingdom come” commits us to doing God’s will and seeking his kingdom first.
Jesus teaches us to begin prayer in reverence for the Father as an antidote to our self-focus and as a foretaste of heaven.
