your will be done

I really enjoyed reading the Gospel of Matthew over the past couple of weeks.  And as I read through it, there were a number of things that stood out to me.  But there was one phrase Jesus spoke that I dwelled upon more than any other.  “Your will be done.”

When teaching the disciples how to pray, Jesus said, “Your will be done.”

When Jesus knew He was in His final hours, He prayed, “Your will be done.”

This ought to give each of us a different perspective on how we pray.  For example, when your small group or ministry team prays, are you seeking God’s will?  When your family prays, are you seeking God’s will?  When you pray, are you seeking God’s will?

Again, Jesus’ words were, “Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”  There’s much we can learn from following His example.
