The Lord's prayer

R.C. Foster in “Studies In The Lfe of Christ” (p. 862) recorded how someone “has pointed out the extraordinary collection of relationships which emerge in this prayer.”

(1) Our Father father and child
(2) Hallowed by thy name God and the worshipper
(3) Thy kingdom come king and subject
(4) Thy will be done master and servant
(5) Give us this day ourdaily bread benefactor and suppliant
(6) Forgive us our debts creditor and debtor
(7) Bring us not into temptation guide and debtor
(8) Deliver us from the evil one redeemer and redeemed

Remember, in order to be saved and enjoy all God’s blessings (not the least of which is salvation), a person must have faith (Jn. 8:24), be willing to repent (Lk. 13:3), and after confessing Christ as Lord, the final step is water baptism (Rom. 6:3; 1 Cor. 12:13; 1 Pet. 3:20-21). Bible baptism is by immersion only (“burial,” Rom. 6:4), and once it is done, heaven puts that person “into Christ” (Gal. 3:27; Rom. 6:3). After proper baptism a person has their sins forgiven (Acts 2:38).
