The Seven Habits of a Godly life


It is obvious that such a God-centered lifestyle cannot be developed and maintained apart from a solid foundation of devotion to God and prayer. Only a strong personal relationship with the living God can keep such a commitment from becoming oppressive and legalistic. John writes that God's commands are not burdensome; a godly life is not wearisome, but this is true only because a godly person is first of all devoted to God. To live this godly life we must first be devoted to God, and then live unto Him in a godly way. In this study we will learn how to live a godly life by applying these seven habits of a godly life to our life. We will learn what a habit is and a godly life, and how to apply these habits to our daily life. In honor to God we must live a godly life. God desire this of His children, because He is holy and righteous. Our goal is to stay focus on God and Who He is, and what He requires of us daily.  We just finished a study on "The Lord's Prayer," now we will focus on a life accepted of God as we pray this prayer and live.

Bible Study: Conclusion: “AMEN”

The Prayer Jesus Taught His Disciples

Matthew 6:5-16

Week # 15


The conclusion maybe a contradiction to what we have studied in this lesson, but it's not; it is a conclusion of what the prayer means to us, and how we should use it.  Please look back at the pattern of the Lord's Pray for a greater understanding of why Jesus taught this prayer. It was for our learning on how to pray to our Father in heaven.


"Why do we end our prayers with 'Amen'?"

The Hebrew word translated "amen" literally means "truly" or "so be it." "Amen" is also found in the Greek New Testament and has the same meaning. Nearly half of the Old Testament uses of amen are found in the book of Deuteronomy. In each case, the people are responding to curses pronounced by God on various sins. Each pronouncement is followed by the words "and all the people shall say Amen" (Deuteronomy 27:15-26). This indicates that the people applauded the righteous sentence handed down by their holy God, responding, "So let it be." The "amen" attested to the conviction of the hearers that the sentences which they heard were true, just, and certain. Seven of the Old Testament references link amen with praise. The sentence "Then all the people said 'Amen' and 'Praise the LORD,'" found in 1 Chronicles 16:36, typifies the connection between amen and praise. In Nehemiah 5:13 and 8:6, the people of Israel affirm Ezra's exalting of God by worshipping the Lord and obeying Him. The highest expression of praise to God is obedience, and when we say "amen" to His commands and pronouncements, our praise is sweet music to His ears.

The New Testament writers all use "amen" at the end of their epistles. The apostle John uses it at the end of his gospel, his three letters, and the book of Revelation, where it appears nine times. Each time it is connected with praising and glorifying God and referring to the second coming and the end of the age. Paul says "amen" to the blessings he pronounces on all the churches in his letters to them, as do Peter, John and Jude in their letters. The implication is that they are saying, "May it be that the Lord will truly grant these blessings upon you."

When Christians say "amen" at the end of our prayers, we are following the model of the apostles, asking God to "please let it be as we have prayed." Remembering the connection between amen and the praise of obedience, all prayers should be prayed according to the will of God. Then when we say "amen," we can be confident that God will respond "so be it" and grant our requests (John 14:131 John 5:14).

The Lord's Prayer is a prayer the Lord Jesus taught His disciples in Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4Matthew 6:9-13 says, "This, then, is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.'" Many people misunderstand the Lord's Prayer to be a prayer we are supposed to recite word for word. Some people treat the Lord's Prayer as a magic formula, as if the words themselves have some specific power or influence with God.

The Bible teaches the opposite. God is far more interested in our hearts when we pray than He is in our words. "But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words" (Matthew 6:6-7). In prayer, we are to pour out our hearts to God (Philippians 4:6-7), not simply recite memorized words to God.

The Lord's Prayer should be understood as an example, a pattern, of how to pray. It gives us the "ingredients" that should go into prayer. Here is how it breaks down. "Our Father in heaven" is teaching us whom to address our prayers to—the Father. "Hallowed be your name" is telling us to worship God, and to praise Him for who He is. The phrase "your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven" is a reminder to us that we are to pray for God's plan in our lives and the world, not our own plan. We are to pray for God's will to be done, not for our desires. We are encouraged to ask God for the things we need in "give us today our daily bread." "Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors" reminds us to confess our sins to God and to turn from them, and also to forgive others as God has forgiven us. The conclusion of the Lord's Prayer, "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one" is a plea for help in achieving victory over sin and a request for protection from the attacks of the devil.

So, again, the Lord's Prayer is not a prayer we are to memorize and recite back to God. It is only an example of how we should be praying. Is there anything wrong with memorizing the Lord's Prayer? Of course not! Is there anything wrong with praying the Lord's Prayer back to God? Not if your heart is in it and you truly mean the words you say. Remember, in prayer, God is far more interested in our communicating with Him and speaking from our hearts than He is in the specific words we use. Philippians 4:6-7 declares, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

If I don't pray, then I am cut off from my only true source of help. I need God and my prayers to Him acknowledge this fact. The longer I am out of prayer, the more I feel out of fellowship with Him. Why not pray to Him more consistently, pour out your heart to Him earnestly, tell Him about all of your burdens and then cast every single one of them upon Him because "he cares about what happens to you" (1 Pet 4:7).


Ending Prayer:


Father in Heaven, You are worthy to be praised. We honor You, and please help us to obey You, and cause our plans to be Your plan for, so we can accomplish it in our lives. Father God, we ask You to forgive us of all the sin we have committed against You.  Also, Lord, help us to forgive others who have hurt us in anyway.  Our God of the whole earth be exalted in every place. We praise you God for sending Your Son Jesus to die for our sin, and for making us free to worship You.  Thank You Jesus, for leaving us this prayer pattern for us to learn how to pray correctly. Holy Spirit, teach us to use these patterns in our everyday prayer life. We give You glory, honor, and praise because You are worthy of them. Let Your Kingdom of peace reign in our hearts, Lord.  Father God, make our relationship with You be priority in our daily living. Thank You for providing and protecting us in every need. We know that all things work together for our good, because You love us.  We thank You and praise You, Lord. Glory be to our God! Hallelujah! We worship You in praise, Lord. Father God, bless us to continue to study Your Word, so we can learn more of You and Your Word to live by and through the Holy Spirit. We love You, Lord! Hallelujah. AMEN.

Let's Hallow His name by rehearsing Who He is:




Adonai is the verbal parallel to Yahweh and JehovahAdonai is plural; the singular is adon. In reference to God the plural Adonai is used. When the singular adon is used, it usually refers to a human lord. Adon is used 215 times to refer to men. Occasionally in Scripture and predominantly in the Psalms, the singular adon is used to refer to God as well.  Exd 34:23). To avoid contravening the commandment "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain" (Exd 20:7), sometimes Adonai was used as a substitute for Yahweh(YHWH). Adonai can be translated literally as, "my lords' " (both plural and possessive).

He makes no mistake: Poem

 My Father's way may twist and turn,

My heart may throb and ache,
But in my soul I'm glad to know,
He makes no mistake.

My cherished plans may go astray,
My hopes may fade away,
But still I'll trust my Lord to lead
For He doth know the way.

Though night be dark, and it may seem
That day will never break,
I'll pin my faith, my all in Him,
He makes no mistake.

There's so much now I cannot see,
My eyesight's far too dim;
But come what may, I'll simply trust
And leave it all to Him.

For by and by the mist will lift
And plain it all He'll make,
Through all the way, though dark to me
He made not one mistake.

1).     What is a Kingdom?

(A country, state, or territory ruled by a king or queen.)

The kingdom of God is the rule of an eternal, sovereign God over the whole universe. Several passages of Scripture show that God is the undeniable Monarch of all creation: "The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all" (Psalm 103:19). And, as King Nebuchadnezzar declared, "His kingdom is an eternal kingdom" (Daniel 4:3). Every authority that exists has been established by God (Romans 13:1). So, in one sense, the kingdom of God incorporates everything that is. 2).          What is Power?

Power is the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events.

3).    Read (Matthew 28:18 and Acts 1:8) I will

4).    What is Glory?

Glory is a high renown or honor won by notable achievements. It's magnificence or great beauty in something.  Take great pride or pleasure in. 

5).    Name the different types of Glory.        

a). Wide and great (Psalm 19:1)

b). Brightness (Exodus 33:20-23)

c). Beauty (Matthew 6:29)

6).    Read (Exodus 33:20-23) I will

7).    What do Shekinah means?

(In Jewish and Christian theology) the glory of the divine presence, conventionally represented as light or interpreted symbolically (in Kabbalism as a divine feminine aspect).

8).    How many years were God silent?

The 400 years of silence refers to the time between the Old Testament and New Testament, during which God did not speak to the Jewish people. The 400 years of silence began with the warning that closed the Old Testament: "Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD. He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse" (Malachi 4:5-6) and ended with the coming of John the Baptist, the Messiah's forerunner. 

9).    What did Christ do when He was born into this world?

Christ laid aside His glory to come to the earth as man; this glory He had with the Father in Heaven.

10).  What statement did Jesus make when He was departing from His disciples? (Matthew 24:30)

He told His disciples that He was coming again, He said, "Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."

11).   How will the Shekinah glory appear when Jesus return?

The Shekinah glory will flesh as the lightning from the east to the west as said in (Matthew 24:27).

12).  What is our primary purpose as a professing Christian?

Our primary purpose is to bring glory to God's honor, and who He is, so that it would bring others to Christ Jesus as Lord of their lives.

13).  Read (2 Corinthians 2:14, 15) I will.

14).  What will we do in eternity?

We will spend eternity praising and glorifying God, the Crestor of the universe.

15).   What do adoration means to you?

To me I feel a deep love and respect for God as I worship Him. When I lift up my hand to God I adore Him so much I have this deep love for Him all in my heart, because I know He deserve it.

Prayer From the Bible:

The Prayer of The early Church


(Acts 4:23-31)


23 And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.

24 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:

25 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? 26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,

28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done. 29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,

30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. 31 (And when they had prayed), the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

Bible Study: The Prayer Jesus Taught His Disciples Week # 14

Let's read............Matthew 6:5-16

Beginning Prayer:


Our heavenly Father, we come to You in Jesus' name asking for peace in the church. Bless our Church leaders to honor You in all that they do. Bless the Holy Spirit to be allowed to lead the leaders of all Churches. Your Word says, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." II Chronicles 7:14. We humble ourselves under Your almighty hands as we pray seeking Your face for answers in the Church today. Bless us to continue to turn from all ways that is not pleased to You in Jesus' name. Thank You Lord, for hearing our prayers as You have promised in Your Word. We do ask for You to forgive our wrong doings, our unbelief, and all that is sin in Your sight. Please help us the Church to obey You in all we do; Your Word says, obedient is better than sacrifice. Please help the Church of Christ to stand up for righteousness, and not give into to what men think is right. Help us to become serious in our watching and praying. Help us to love one another with a pure heart, and help us to sit our minds on things above, and not on things here on earth.  We give You glory, honor, and praise because You are worthy, everything is Your, You have all the power, and we will always give You all the glory, We pray this prayer in Jesus' name, amen.

Subject:   "The Lord's Prayer" For Yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory (Part 2)


Yours is the Kingdom… Continue


Now let us look at the three possessions of our God mentioned here. First is the kingdom. We have a great deal to say about the kingdom, and I make no apologies in going over some of this again, for repetition is a sound principle of pedagogy. Let us remember that in this magnificent Old Testament prayer, David had in mind the kingdom God had promised to him—that from his line there would come the Anointed One, the Messiah, the Christ, and He would sit upon the throne of David and rule on this earth. As David lifted his heart to God in prayer, he saw a kingdom lying in the future; he saw that kingdom as a mighty focal point with the great rays of Scripture converging upon it. That is my reason for saying that the church is in the kingdom and we are moving toward that day when the kingdom shall be established. The Father said to the Son, "Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool" (Psalm 110:1). After His rejection, Christ was brought to death through crucifixion, was buried, rose from the dead, ascended back to heaven, and took His place at Gods right hand. And today He is bringing many sons home to glory. Thus He is moving world events toward the focal point when this kingdom shall be established upon the earth, He shall reign from shore to shore, righteousness shall cover this earth as the waters cover the sea, and righteousness and peace shall kiss each other. We must remember that this kingdom will not come by human manipulation. It will not come by ecumenical movements or any man-made program. It will be established in one way, and that is by the catastrophic and cataclysmic coming of Christ to this earth to put down all unrighteousness and establish His kingdom here in power and glory. And that is what you express when you say, "Yours is the kingdom."


…And the Power… But, my beloved, let us move on to the second possession: "the power." This is an age of power. It is an age of jet planes, rockets for outer space, and nuclear warheads. But in this age of power, when unheard of things are being accomplished in a material world, it has become the age of powerlessness for the church. As Samson was shorn of his hair, thus has the church been robbed of her power.


I'm reminded of Thomas Aquinas who entered the place where the Pope was counting the money. Thinking he had entered at a time when he should not have, he turned to walk away. But the Pope saw him and said, "Sir Thomas, no longer can the church say, „Silver and gold have I none." Without even turning to look back, Thomas Aquinas said, "That is right, your Holiness, but no longer can the church say to the impotent man, „Rise and walk."


This is an age of powerlessness, and yet [He is] declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. (Romans 1:4) He also says,


All authority [power] has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. (Matthew 28:18)


And further, But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you…. (Acts 1:8)


How can these things be? Let us look at the common logic of it. If the electric lights go out in Los Angeles, it does not mean that Hoover Dam has given way. It simply means that somewhere a connection has been broken. Now Christ has had all power given to Him, and if your church is powerless, then some of you had better be walking the line to see where the connection has been broken. Do you recall the incident of the man at the foot of the Mount of Transfiguration? He had the little lad who was demon possessed, and he said, "So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him" (Matthew 17:16). How true that is of us today. It should cause us to bow our heads in prayer. Perhaps He cannot trust us with power today because we abuse or misuse it. But thank God He is coming and He will use power to correct the evils of this world. It will take power to get rid of our political regimes. It will take power to put Christ on the throne. He is coming in power! His is the kingdom, the power!


…And the Glory  


And now let us come to "the glory." What is glory? What is its shape, size, and color? Perhaps you feel that you have never seen it, or you believe that it is spiritual and therefore cannot be seen. Not so, my friend. It can be seen. Every Hebrew word translated as our English word "glory" means something physical. It has been a rich experience for me to go through these words in order to arrive at their real meaning. How my heart longs to see the glory! I trust that you will be interested to look at these words, also. The first "glory" means "wide and great" as in this verse: "The heavens declare the glory of God…" (Psalm 19:1). I never look into the starry heavens but that I am reminded of the greatness and vastness of His glory. O, the vastness of the universe! And did you know that it is expanding continually? Surely "the heavens declare the glory of God." Then there is another word associated with our word "glory," and it means "brightness." And there is a third word that is translated "beauty," as in, "…Even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these" (Matthew 6:29), referring to the lilies of the field. Just as this universe reveals the vastness of God, so a little flower reveals something of the beauty of God. The One who made the flowers loves beauty, and God is the One who made the flowers. But the most common word in the Old Testament relative to the glory of God is the Hebrew word kabod, which means "wealth and worth; dignity and honor; splendor and majesty" and can apply either to God or man. Its primary meaning is that of the external or physical, but it also has an ethical and moral significance. When used, it speaks of the purity and holiness of God; it speaks of His essential character: I am the LORD, that is My name; and My glory I will not give to another, nor My praise to carved images. (Isaiah 42:8)


 Now this word "glory" as used in the Old Testament speaks of a material manifestation of God. Moses said to God on Mt. Sinai, "Lord, I want to see your face," and God said, "Ill let you see my glory" (see Exodus 33:20-23). Moses saw Gods glory on another occasion, too. We read that when the tabernacle was completed, the glory of the Lord filled the place. And when Moses and Aaron moved out with the Israelites, the Shekinah presence of God was with them in the form of a pillar of cloud by day and fire by night. It was a physical manifestation of God. You may recall that when Solomon built the temple, the glory was transferred from the tabernacle to the temple. But somewhere in their long, dreary, sinful history, the glory departed. Ezekiel saw the vision—it lifted up from the temple and abode a moment to see if the people would turn back to God. But they did not, so it withdrew out over the city. It paused again over the city walls to see if the people might turn to God, but they would not. Then it went on out to the Mount of Olives and was caught back into heaven. That was the last view of the Shekinah glory. Then after four hundred years of silence, shepherds on a hillside had a manifestation of the glory of God as the angel said, "Glory to God in the highest." As John said: And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us [pitched His tent among us], and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14) May I say that the word "glory" has an ethical value here, because in Christ it was not physically manifested, except on one or two occasions. What they saw was that He was innately holy, harmless, undefiled, the One separate from sinners. But when He was born, He laid aside His glory that He had with the Father in heaven. The thing that identified God in the Old Testament no longer identified Him. In the New Testament, we find Him wrapped in the swaddling clothes of humanity and, in due time, grown to full manhood and the service of the ministry. He laid aside that physical manifestation as a garment. In writing of it Paul says:


Who, being in the form of God [the morphia of God], did not consider it robbery to be equal with God [because it rightfully belonged to Him], but [laid it aside and] made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. (Philippians 2:6, 7) For over 2000 years, theologians have been arguing about what it was that He laid aside. What was it that He emptied Himself of? I feel that He laid aside His glory and walked this earth as a man. Oh, He is God, but He laid aside His glory. Then there came that day when He walked with His disciples and "a cloud received Him out of their sight" (Acts 1:9). It was not a rain cloud. It was the glory-cloud—the Shekinah glory. That which He had laid aside was waiting for Him, and thus He took, again, all the prerogatives that rightfully were His. He wore it as a garment and entered into heaven! At this point of departure He made a statement that we will do well to meditate upon. In telling His disciples that He was coming again, He said, Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:30)


Have you ever stopped to think what that sign is going to be? I am not sure that I know, but I would like to make a suggestion. Personally, I feel that when He is to come, the Shekinah glory will flash as the lightning from the east to the west. Thus Shekinah glory will again be revealed upon the earth. There is no glory today—it is withheld. Today you and I are to glorify Him. He said: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16) And Paul said: Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10:31) That is the chief business of a Christian. Some will say that soul-winning is the Christians chief end. No, that is secondary. To glorify God is our primary business as a professing Christian. Scripture has a word for us here: Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. (2 Corinthians 2:14, 15) You and I are to glorify God regardless of results. We are to glorify Him and bring nothing of disrepute on His name or cause that will drive men and women from His presence. Someday that is what we will spend an eternity doing—glorifying Him. If you do not enjoy glorifying Him here, then I do not think you will enjoy heaven very much. In all fairness, how can you—after thinking quietly upon the undeserved love and goodness of God poured out upon you—fail to want to kneel before Him thankfully in adoration? "For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever."

Ending Prayer:


Hallelujah to the King! Glory to God! Lord, I praise You, You are worthy of all praise; My heart is Yours, Lord. Father God, we come to You in Jesus' name asking for Your power to be upon each one of us today, Your power is what we need to get through all trials and temptation. We cannot do it without You, Lord. Grant us this day to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and Lord, the wisdom to know the different in each trial and temptation. Thank You, Lord, for this bible study on Jesus' teaching of the prayer recorded in Your Word.  We do honor and praise You, we give You all the glory, and we know that all power is Yours, there is no power that be except Your power; no power more powerful than Your power; You are omnipotent!  All power! This we pray in Your Son Jesus' name.  Amen.
