Bible commentary

Discussion for Matthew 5

  • Nature
    Others have a chance to offer compassion to those in pain. What if our suffering is Their test. Is a chance for them to choose to show kindness. Then a opportunity for us to say and show to them that our strength and comfort in those troubling times comes from the Lord. He does not think as we mere humans do but as the mighty Alpha and Omega. The Great I AM. Lean not on our own understanding.

    To Devlin if your still reading this, yes it does state in the bible that Jesus is God. Please read, John 1:1 in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. I don't know you, your age, earthly age or Christian age. You made baby Christian for a season one. I won't make an assumption. I was a Christian for many years before I realized "Word" is capitalized! Word is Christ!!! Just replace "Word" with"Christ". I think bc not only was Christ sent here to die for our sins but, also to be the earthly voice of God. If we were to hear the voice of God I believe it would be to much for a human to handle.

    Love this scripture. Our Lord Jesus really lets us know how to please the Father while living in harmony one with another. Among my favorite chapters of Matthew. God bless

    Jesus was persecuted , He was reviled ,and all manner was spoken against Him falsely : The religious leaders did it in thinking they were upholding God in their accusations toward Jesus : Jesus was walking in God's will : and so for us who walk in God's will : religious people will do the same toward us . We are a Blessed people : even though we get knocked down for it.

    It doesn't because jesus already knew what was coming.
