Lead us not into temptation

Word Cloud from Coventry Vineyard's series on the LORD's Prayer (Nick Sutton)

“Those who let God be God get off the conveyor belt of emotion and desire when it starts to move toward the buzz saw of sin. They do not wait until it is moving so fast they cannot get off it. Their aim is not to avoid sin, but to avoid temptation – the inclination to sin.They plan their path accordingly.”

-Dallas Willard, Renovation of the Heart

As we forgive those who sing against us

As we forgive others

 

“Failure to forgive … wasn’t a matter of failing to live up to a new bit of moral teaching. It was cutting off the branch you were sitting on. The only reason for being Kingdom-people, for being Jesus’ people, was that the forgiveness of sins was happening; so if you didn’t live forgiveness, you were denying the very basis of your own new existence.”

-N. T. Wright, The Lord and His Prayer

Forgive us our sins

Forgive us

 

“Einstein’s E=MC2 is an extraordinary concept. So radical: matter and energy are two phases of the same sort of general stuff. There’s only one other idea that radical: Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”

“There is no future without forgiveness”

-Kurt Vonnegut
