Discussion for Matthew 18

  • Peter
    Praise the LORD! Last night I just read the story of the two disciples who were to Emmaus, and Jesus joined them, told them the things they concerned and gave them joy. Luke 24:13-33 As for a family,a 3-member one is enough to fulfill the promise! How wonderful the blessing is!

    geraldinecole you are so right about preachers. but im going take your advice and pray he leads me and my family to the right church.
  • GeraldineCole
    PRAISE THE LORD JESUS WHO WAS SENT TO EARTH TO DIE IN OUR PLACE AND HE WAS SENT BY HIS FATHER WHO IS GOD. There is nothing on this earth we can do if we want to see Jesus one day but to do and live by his Word everything else is vanity and Act chapter 2 V 38 when U follow that first then you will be Saved. Then study the word and the bible will show yoU how to live ask Jesus to lead u to a Church were he wants U to be .because preacher are not like they use to be most of them now just want Money they will not help the people that need help but only help themselves Jesus is not please we shall reap what we Sow Amen
  • Irene
    I like what Mockingbird said; everytime i read this - i am reminded how our mouths can run wild and hurt or just be mis-understood. I had this experience of a 'loose' mouth just recently, but it was 'just' a mis-understanding; my Sis. in the Lord and I got it cleared up though.
  • Ps gideon
    Yes is true Jesus he is our saviour and out lord We are find by him we bow today and say thank you Lord
  • Chukwuemeka
    Jesus is still in the business of finding lost souls and very soon no body would put up an excuse that nobody came looking for him when he was lost.so let the lost believe in his rescue business and make Jesus smile.
