Gateway Church
Gateway Church (Parkesburg Campus) September 12, 2021
The "GTWY CODE" is a series of 13 sentences...daily reminders of how we believe God calls us to live. They begin with "We believe, we see, we recognize, we will, we intentionally, we craft, we invest, we feel, we view, we pursue, we strive, we value." The last sentence says: "We prioritize prayer as foundational and essential to everything we do." This Fall, we continue learning from Jesus and the gospel of Matthew, as the Sermon on the Mount focuses on PRAYER. Children memorize it, church going folk recite it. Students study it. But...what could happen in The Church...if we LIVED IT. Whether you call it "The Lord's Prayer" or "The Disciple's Prayer", please open your heart to learn directly from Jesus, as He calls us to "Pray Like This." Pastor Scott set the stage for this "life long lesson" on prayer last WKND, walking us through Matthew 6:5-8. Beginning today...we walk through the model from Jesus one phrase or big idea at a time. How does the reality of God's HOLY NAME influence our prayers?

GOD’S HOLINESS REVEALS OUR SIN, OUR BLESSING, AND OUR CALL TO INTENTIONAL PRAYER.
Εὐλογητὸς (Eulogētos) = praiseworthy, blessed, eulogize

THE FULFILLMENT OF GOD’S BLESSING AND CALL TO HOLINESS CANNOT BE ACHIEVED DUE TO OUR SIN.
I AM INFINITELY BLESSED BECAUSE JESUS HAS TRADED MY CURSE FOR HIS BLESSING.
“BLESS” OR “BLESSING” IS USED 50 TIMES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT AND ALMOST EVERY SINGLE USE IS LOOKING BACK TO THE OT AND
THE PERSON OF JESUS.
εὐλογήσας (eulogesas) = to enact divine favor toward a recipient.

εὐλογία (eulogia) = a present given to promote the livelihood of a recipient.
Ευλογημένος εν Χριστό

BLESSED, EULOGIZED, & PRAISED IN CHRIST.

THE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF THE HOLINESS AND BLESSING OF JESUS SHOULD IMMEDIATELY RESULT IN THE PRAISE OF GOD.

THROUGH THE PERSON OF JESUS, THE HALLOWEDNESS OF GOD HAS BEEN DEPOSITED INTO OUR ACCOUNT WHICH EQUATES TO
INFINITE BLESSING.
WHEN WE ASK FOR MORE BLESSING GOD IS SAYING…

EVERYTHING I HAVE IS YOURS AND EVERYTHING I AM IS YOURS AND I HAVE ALREADY DEPOSITED EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING INTO YOUR ACCOUNT THAT IS NOW ACTIVATED BY THE PERSON OF JESUS.
RATHER THAN ALWAYS ASKING GOD FOR MORE BLESSING, WE SHOULD BE PRACTICING MORE GRATITUDE FOR THE BLESSING WE ALREADY HAVE.
WHAT IF INSTEAD OF ASKING GOD FOR MORE BLESSING…WE PRAYED…

GOD, I WANT TO BLESS YOU BACK FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE SO GRACIOUSLY BLESSED ME WITH.

GOD, ALLOW ME TO BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN INFINITELY BLESSED BY YOU.
IS THE GOSPEL ABOUT THE GIFTS OR THE GIVER? IS THE GOSPEL ABOUT THE REDEEMED OR THE REDEEMER? IS THE GOSPEL ABOUT EARTHLY RICHES OR ETERNAL REWARD?

IS THE GOSPEL ABOUT MONETARY GAIN OR THE GLORY OF GOD? IS THE GOSPEL ABOUT OBTAINING MY MATERIAL DESIRES OR USING WHAT I HAVE TO DO GOOD FOR GOD….”

-COSTI HINN
INTENTIONALITY IS THE AVENUE TO FRUITFULNESS.

SAY WHAT YOU MEAN, MEAN WHAT YOU SAY.

GOD’S HOLINESS REVEALS OUR SIN, OUR BLESSING, AND OUR CALL TO INTENTIONAL PRAYER.
