Prayer, Principle 5A. Confession 1B The Beatitudes

 

Review

Needs related to 2B. life’s elements: 1C. Spiritual 2C. Physical (food, sex, sleep, exercise) 3C. MENTAL/EMOTIONAL– [right thinking] 4C. SOCIAL – favor (time with/for others.) 5C. FINANCIAL stewardship.

Accountability for ability and talents given motivates faithfulness. Remembrance of that accountability is essential on a daily basis. Stewardship is worship.

There are various needs we see as a human being, and the above are those which seem to be basic to all our race and within the Christian or biblical viewpoint. Needs of humanity have been researched and philosophized since man was created and man has since the fall in the Garden, rebelled against God’s view of man’s needs. He has tried to define life apart from God. For further study see, "The God Who Is There," and "How Should We Then Live?" by Francis Schaeffer.

From the Prayer Notebook:

Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.

5A. CONFESSION – As I have kept short sin-debts by immediate confession of sins You have revealed, I now pause to examine my heart further for wrong attitudes. As You convict, I will once again make confession of my sin and remember it's results.

Matthew 5.3-10 "Blessed are..."

1B. THE BEATITUDES – Lord, help me...

Why include the beatitudes in the Confession Prayer Principle 5A?

bulletThe context of the beatitudes deals with attitudes Jesus claimed as vital for being His disciple.
bulletThe beatitudes precede the text of the Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6.
bulletAttitudes similar to the beatitudes are developed only by time spent developing them-- they are intensively offensive to the "old man" -- our fleshly nature.
bulletThe Lord's Prayer itself follows with the words: Matt 6:14 "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 "But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."  And Forgiveness is only preceded with a humility befitting those elements of the beatitudes.
