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.

    V. 6. If, when giving tithes and offerings, you desire to increase giving, cheerfully and lovingly, to the Lord, talk to Jesus. He will make the way for the increase, even if in small increments. Giving your income and finances to Him will allow Him to work with them. AND YOU WILL BE AMAZED at His working with your finances. He will do as He says. He will make sure you never lacking. TRUST HIM

    To let God straighten you out..instead of lieing and telling people that you already have.follow his commandments, and to read the word..amen..
  • Joshua
    Seek His Kingdom first - in your heart what is laid out before you? Are you giving your all to the Lord by giving your all to Him and or people? Because the second commandment it like the first. We must do both. The second is conditional considering you love yourself first. Otherwise it impedes the commandment itself. But to go after His Kingdom - first requires a lot of not going after His Kingdom and knowing the difference. His Righteousness - Breakthroughs in personal bondage to sin and lust and pride and greed and anger and hate all have to begin with the error in doing them. After a season of recognizing personal failure can the knowledge of His Righteousness be attainable. Righteousness is given by Him. But you have to seek Him and fail to know the difference. Only by personal experience can someone actually achieve this verse over their lifetime. That is why this verse is pact with so many hints that it is a work of sanctification and not of good works but of grace because so much of it depends of Him,,..... His,.... in order for it to be realized. There is only subtle things we can do other than sit back and enjoy the process. Like kids you can imagine the weary question,..."are we there yet?,..." and the loving Father responds "No, I'll let you know when we get there."
  • Rick
    What does it mean to seek the Kingdom of God! That is to seek out your own salvation with fear and trembling! To seek after forgiveness and repent of all your sins, then you shall become righteous in Gods eyes! Then the blessings of God will be added to you like, peace that passeth all understanding, being fullfiled with life, being content with what you have, habe love and compassion for others etc...! That is the beauty of it all, that you become like Christ in all your ways! That is the thing we should desire and strive for, not the pleasures of our flesh!
  • Robert Johnson
    JUST GO FEED THE CHILDREN OF GOD!! Winning souls for Jesus Christ?? Why don't you go save a child, so there is soul left to save?? Mark 9:37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me. MARK MY WORDS"!! Now get unfold yer hands, get up off your knees and WALK, straight out that door!!For you are wasting time... As it is written... Acts 17:24 "God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands 25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things " What are you waiting for?? AN EN'GRAVED' INVITATION!!

    I love this scripture, because it is also a song. My mom loves when I sing it. Also we sang it in church not to long ago.
