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.

    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!
  • Esther
    Matthew 6 vs. 33 "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all this things shall be added unto you". If God could feed the birds of the air, how much more we humans that He created in His own image. Serving God with all we have and putting him first and everything shall be added unto us.
  • Lucinda Palestrant
    Matthew 6:24 "No man can serve two masters, you will hate one and love the other" If worldly things are put first, and Jesus second, you don't understand this chapter. Turn away from idols.
  • 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.
  • Praise God
    If your eye is single your whole body will be full of light but if your be evil your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore your light is darkness how great is that darkness. Take a little time and think about it It is a game changer if we are serious about our lives in Christ There are certain evils that we dare not participate in to keep our light light.matt 6v22
  • O'Shen Robinson-Barefield
    I like this, the Lord tells us about being materialistic and seeking attention. He is warning us, rebuking us, and trying to make is easier for us. He was telling us not to worry too much about things in this life so we can live the life he brought.
