Description

In this Regent Chapel talk given during the Winter of 2013, John Stackhouse discusses Jesus' instructions in Matthew 6:1-18. Rather than prayer and piety being subsumed under "magical thinking," Jesus tells us that our Father in Heaven does not need to be persuaded or manipulated into giving or providing for His children. Rather, God hears us, He knows our needs, and He loves us like a parent—which calls us into a new relationship with Him that is marked by trusting obedience, forgiveness, and faithfulness.
