Which Art in Heaven
Matthew 6:9
After this manner therefore pray you: Our Father which are in heaven, Hallowed be your name.

I. The RESIDENCE of God. Heaven is the seat of His government; the region of holiness and enjoyment; the abode of angels and saints.

II. His STUPENDOUS CONCERNS. Arranging all the affairs of the universe; receiving the homage of the celestial inhabitants (Revelation 4:2); issuing His commands and executing His threatenings; attending to the supplication of His people; protecting His Church" (Zechariah 2:5).

III. THE INFLUENCE OF THE SUBJECT UPON OUR MIND. Humility, reverence, spiritual desires, confidence, expectation, joy.
