Can God Trust You?

• Greg Boyd

Every day we confront choices that reflect and form our character. Will we live for ourselves, or for the Kingdom? God wants us to be trustworthy for Kingdom service and it’s true that he tests us to refine our character, but he doesn’t tempt anyone. If that’s true, why does Jesus teach us to pray, “lead us not into temptation?”

Focus Scripture:

  • Luke 11:1-4

    One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”

    He said to them, “When you pray, say:
    “ 'Father,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come.

    Give us each day our daily bread.

    Forgive us our sins,
    for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.
    And lead us not into temptation.' “

    As far as I know the catholic church now translates it like: And do not let us fall to temptation. I read (Newspaper) that this is in accordance with the hebrew original, though not with the greek original.

    i’m still confused; is samuels “dont let us fall into temptation” workable?
