As I finish going through Jesus’ Example Prayer, I want to spend one more week on the final phrase. “And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”
Having grown up going to church, Christian school for K-12th grade and Bible College, I know it can be easy to forget how much sin we have been saved from. I have mostly known people who have tried to live according to the Bible. We haven’t committed what most people think of as bad sins. However, Jesus’ Example Prayer includes a request for help from sin. The fact that Jesus taught us to pray this, means we need help with the battle against sin.
My prayer is that we learn to follow Jesus’ example. He had the perfect plan in mind and knew what we would need.
God is so good.
