Wesley's Notes for Matthew 6:10


6:10 Thy kingdom come - May thy kingdom of grace come quickly, and swallow up all the kingdoms of the earth: may all mankind, receiving thee, O Christ, for their king, truly believing in thy name, be filled with righteousness, and peace, and joy; with holiness and happiness, till they are removed hence into thy kingdom of glory, to reign with thee for ever and ever. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven - May all the inhabitants of the earth do thy will as willingly as the holy angels: may these do it continually even as they, without any interruption of their willing service; yea, and perfectly as they: mayest thou, O Spirit of grace, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make them perfect in every good work to do thy will, and work in them all that is well pleasing in thy sight.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 6:10


Mt 6:10 Thy kingdom come. The Messiah's kingdom had not yet come, but was proclaimed by the Lord as at hand. It did speedily come, but in its fullness, and in its final triumph over evil, it has not yet come. For this coming we may now pray, and the prayer is answered in part by each success of the gospel. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven. None can pray thus who have not merged their own wills into the divine will. He, in effect, prays the prayer of Gethsemane, "Not my will, but thine, be done" (Lu 22:42). It is mockery for disobedient lips to utter such a prayer.

Discussion for Matthew 6

    Jesus wanted people to place their hope elsewhere rather than in materialistic things. He wanted them to rely on the Source of lasting riches—Jehovah God. And we should want to also rely on Jehovah God rather than things we can not trust.
  • Andy
    Matthew 6 guides us in our relationship with Christ. God wants a personal relationship not for public display, but a personal relatinship with us. The things that we do should be done because of our love for God and not for public display. The world may see our good works but our good works should be done to glorify God

    Its about what you do silently with your heart that counts not what you say ...
  • Matthew Mutua
    It only makes sense to look up to God's restraints concerning charity. Why blow one's own trumpet?

    If only we could be committed to doing the right thing in disregard of recognition...

    This chapter encourages us to wait for the most important thing: God's reward during the messiah's second coming.

    Love it,give me strength and motivation to do better! I read chapter 6 every night before going to sleep! A good friend of mine told me about chapter 6 and is really helps me going through hard times!
  • Tunde
    The lord is great , if only people know that Jesus is the first they would not run after the things of the world because he has said " seek the kingdom of God first and every other things shall be added" but now a days people make things of the world first and Jesus the second option. May the lord forgive us all.
