Message: Pastor Nevada “Our Father”
Heidelberg Catechism: Lord’s Day 46, Q & A 126
Q. Why did Christ command us to call God “our Father”?
A. To awaken in us at the very beginning of our prayer
what should be basic to our prayer— a childlike reverence and trust
that through Christ God has become our Father, and that just as our parents do not refuse us the things of this life, even less will God our Father refuse to give us what we ask in faith.
