The first lesson Jesus teaches the disciples after the Transfiguration is about faith. Faith is essential in the Christian life. We come to Christ by faith and we live by faith. Our faith is in our great God, not in ourselves.
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.
Jesus gives Christians of every generation “The Lords Prayer”. This is a model prayer for us not to repeat mindlessly, but to understand the essential ingredients in prayer.
Jesus always hits the bull’s-eye! In this passage He expects us to do the right thing with the right heart attitude. Jesus hates hypocrisy!
