Prayer in the Church

11/18/18 - Prayer in the Church - Colossians 4:2-6

There is no such thing as a small prayer. Short prayer? Yes. But small… not so much. Prayer is a “bending of the knee” before the Holy God of creation. It’s a declaration that He is the great and sovereign King, and we are his servants. But rather than being a terrifying and fear-filled thing, we have become, through faith in Jesus Christ, children of God. We should not approach God casually or flippantly, but neither do we come before him with fear and trembling – we come a children with a healthy reverence for their Father.

When we were dead in our sins. When we were dead in our sins. We had no more power to walk or eat or get dressed than an actual dead man lying in a coffin to chose God and submit to Him let alone confess our sin, cover our sin and be at peace with Him. “The work of Christ is a work of power because it puts life into dead men.” (Barclay). For us who believe, God made you alive with Jesus Christ. God made you alive. God forgave us all our sins. Jesus blotted out the handwritten list of crimes we have and will committ against him. The literal word for “written code”, means “autograph”. The technical meaning was a handwritten note written by the debtor acknowledging his indebtedness. It was what you and I would consider an I.O.U. Men who were on death row personally acknowledged the debt. In the New Testament days these charges were written on papyrus or animal skin called velum. Both were vey expensive and the ink used on these surfaces was not like our ink today that bites into the surface.
