It helps us in our spiritual walk when we understand who GOD truly is and how AWESOME He is in comparison to us as people. We must continually remember: He is BIG; we are small.
It is the mercy of God that communicates who He is to mankind. It is the grace of God that offers man the invitation to know him. We see both of these in today's passage.
Jesus models for us what prayer really is all about. Christians has the privilege of praying to God as a child talks to his father.
Pastor Jim teaches about truly knowing Jesus Christ and not being self-deceived.
