Your Will Be Done (LD 49; Matt. 6:10 | 2009-2010 Catechism Sermons

When we read about Adam in the garden of Eden scripture tells us that he was created perfect, and was created to do the will of the Lord. We know that Adam failed to do the Lord’s will. Adam’s sin brought sin and death to humanity, and even this creation is under a curse. If Adam in his state of perfection did not do the will of the Lord, why would we, as fallen people, pray that we do the will of the Lord? How does this third request, your will be done, testify to the grace and power of God? How does this request make us marvel at our Lord, and His work? Please stay tuned to our sermon titled, “Your Will Be Done.”
