Fish or Snake?

What’s the deal with prayer, and what are we asking for? When Jesus spoke about prayer in the Sermon on the Mount, he said that no good father gives his son a snake when the son asks for fish. Then he said that our Father in heaven will give good gifts to those who ask. But is asking gifts the only thing we have to talk to our Father about? And when we ask, are we asking for good gifts, gifts that will help us grow and do us good? When Jesus prayed, he knew what he was asking for. The Lord’s Prayer is there to teach us about it.

What about us? Fish or Snake?

Join us on Sunday as we explore this new theme. We meet at 4pm at Bakkehaugen Kirke, Oslo.

Crumbs

The Old Covenant was a covenant between the Lord and the people of Israel. Jesus Christ was born a Jew and sent to the lost sheep of Israel. But what of the gentiles, those who were not part of the covenant? Did God also care about them? And did Jesus come to save them too? Or were they only left with crumbs?
