Mt 18:5 Whoso shall receive one such little child in my name. "Receiving in my name" is serving with Christian love, and as belonging to Christ. Receiveth me. Observe that the true way to receive Christ is to receive into our heart, for Christ's sake, those who need our sympathies.

Discussion for Matthew 18

  • Abram Rantao for verse 11
    Methink that the verse should be put back in the Bible, because it clearly states the Lord has come to restore "THAT" humanity's relationship with Jehovah God was lost
  • PAUL JUTTA NKANSAH for verse 18
    This is powerful and very encouraging and it motivates me a lot .
  • Bradford Hammond for verse 19
    Excellent verse for healing touch and agree for it.The Lord Jesus Christ paid the price for already.Thank you JESUS.
  • Stevie Marshall for verse 20
    where 2 or three are gathered...hmmmm. This is interesting because we don't need anyone else for us to be in the spirit. We can commune with God all by ourselves. I take this as the two being gathered being God and I and if anyone else wishes to join in the acknowledgement and praise of God, God will welcome them as well. God is always everywhere in his own name and as long as I even if I'm by myself am gathered in God's name, he will be there in the midst with me.
  • Emmanuel
    I learned that it is not enough to just say I forgive you. It has to be from the heart. People can say "I forgive you" but their heart is saying something else. The Lord demands it has to be from the heart. Thank You Lord, help me!
  • Corey arnold
    Matthew 18 a very powerful chapter that speakes on many things teaching us how to humble ourselves and to cast away from us the offences we may have so that we could hear Him say well done my tried and tested servant, not depart from me you worker of iniquity I knew you not and also teaching us that our Father is watching us along with the angels how we treat one another holding grudges not forgiving then we turn around and ask the Lord to forgive us. I have come to realize that we cant get anywhere being at war with each other but if we come together in the name of the Lord He shall be in the midst of us. " Thats the key unity " Be Blessed!
