Your kingdom come, Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

1. Not in a spirit of indolent acquiescense.

2. God has a will concerning our actions.

3. God looks on the heart.

4. Three points revealed concerning the life of angels.

(1)  Their holiness;

(2)  the vitality of their service;

(3)  the love.Their angelic obedience is distinguished by holiness, diligence, love.

(1)  We must cast away everything that defileth.

(2)  We must stir up the gift that is in us to a lovelier, a brighter, a more kindling glow.

(3)  Above all, by setting ourselves to that which is the very work of heaven — sympathy and love. In heaven there is no disobedience, no indolence, no selfishness.
