People's Bible Notes for Matthew 18:35


Mt 18:35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, etc. Observe Christ says, "My heavenly Father", not "your". God will not be their heavenly Father unless they emulate his spirit of mercy, and are as ready to forgive others their trespasses as he is to forgive their own. "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy" (Mt 5:7). "As ye mete to others it shall be measured to you" (Mt 7:2). "Forgive us our trespasses even as we forgive those who trespass against us "(Mt 6:12). "Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap" (Ga 6:7). If we are hard and unforgiving to our fellow-men, we can never expect our heavenly Father to overlook our own sins. It is a vital doctrine that we, by our own mind towards others, determine what shall be the mind of God towards us.

Discussion for Matthew 18

    Although I'm not a Christian, it's nice to know that Jesus approves of my child-like behavior. When I play with my Star Wars Lego sets I become child-like even though I'm 38 years old and thus I enter a spiritual state of mind that can be called heaven...
  • BSP
    The last part of this chapter tells us that if we want to receive God's forgiveness then we must forgive others.
  • 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!
  • Mim

    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
