SEBTS Chapel - Ernest Mayfield Ligon February 7, 1961

  • The service begins with a word of introduction (00:00-01:07), the reading of Matthew 6:5-13 (01:08-02:40), a prayer request and general information (02:41-04:28), and prayer (04:29-05:40). An introduction is given for the speaker, Ernest Mayfield Ligon, who was the Director of the Character Research Project at Union College in Schenectady, NY (05:41-07:05). His message is the first of three in a series on the Lord’s Prayer. He begins by relating the spiritual life of the world to the “darkness” of Genesis 1:2 but encourages the audience that God called light into existence in Genesis 1:3. He emphasizes the importance of Jesus’s discipleship of the twelve during His earthly ministry (07:06-14:36). This message will focus only on “Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed by thy name” (14:37-15:03). He emphasizes the importance of “making decisions” and “responsibility” for the upcoming generations in their discipleship (15:04-18:38), describing the topic in terms of raising children (18:39-26:36). He ends in prayer (26:37-27:24).
