The Campus House Podcast is our collection of Sunday teachings, meant to encourage and equip you in your relationship with Jesus. Campus House invites you to listen, dive deeper into the Word, and catch a glimpse of God’s ongoing work in your life and in our ministry.
As many believers throughout history have pointed out, what you think about God (theology) often determines what you do in your life (practice). Matthew 6 is one of the teachings in the New Testament with the greatest concentration of times when Jesus is talking about God being a Father. At the center of his central teaching to his disciples in the Sermon on the Mount, he emphasizes that the only way to relate to God is with him as your Father. There are other ways to pray — but they are based on performance, not a personal parent-child relationship. So what does it mean that God is our Father? How do we become his children? And what affect does that have on our prayers? Jesus shows us in Matthew 6:5-15.
We recognize that the point of prayer is communion with God. He longs to connect with us and it gives him great delight. Taking the Lord’s Prayer & dividing it into sections we can see different aspects of the Father & ways to connect to his heart. He is our focus, our provider, our deliverer & our delight.
