Your Kingdom Come (Luke 11:2; LD 48) | 2008-2009 Catechism Sermons

When Christ enters history the kingdom comes with Christ. However, when we are taught to pray in the Lord’s prayer we are told to pray Your kingdom come. If the kingdom is present with Christ then why do we pray, your kingdom come? Does this mean that the ministry of Christ has failed? How can we say that the very fact we make this request it testifies that the kingdom has in fact succeeded? Please stay tuned as we work through the third petition of the Lord’s prayer in our sermon titled, “Your Kingdom Come.”
