Lord, Teach us to Pray: Lead us not Into Temptation - 3/19/2023

Scripture: Matthew 6:13 (NKJV)

Summary: "J. I. Packer said, "I never get to the end of mortifying sin because sin in my heart is still looting, even though it is not ...
dominant. Sin is constantly expressing itself in new disorderly desires. . . I am called to — indeed, deep down in my heart, I want to — go into action with this prayer procedure for draining the life out of them. And I think this is a discipline every Christian has to wake up to the right at the beginning of the Christian life and continue as long as we are in this world. "
The Christian desires to live in holiness. He does not take God's forgiveness for granted. As such, he regularly hopes to ask God for protection from temptation and sin. He wants to glorify God with a holy walk. He keenly knows that life is a spiritual battleground, not a playground. How, then, can one experience true victory over temptation and sin?
As Bunyan said, "Prayer will keep sin out, or sin will keep Prayer out. " Learn to mortify (put to death) sin in this sermon! Remember, as William Cowper said, "Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees. "
