Heaven\’s Anxiety Over the Lost

This is one of my granddad’s sermons (Floyd Gentle) that he preached back in the late 70’s.  I am not sure if it originated with him or not but he had it typed on smaller paper where it could be put in a small 3 ringed binder.  There are several more of his sermons in this binder and I have 2 more binders to look through.  Hopefully I will be preaching some more of his sermons in the near future.

\”…As it is in Heaven\”

One part of Jesus’ prayer in Matt 6:10 says, “thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”  Let’s notice what things should be like here, “as it is heaven.”
