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.

  • Obbie Beal
    Forgiving is a essential daily food needed by the body. Leaving forgiveness out of our daily life is like refusing to drink water.... don't drink water bring on a 'slow but show' death.
  • SpiderIvy
    Shouldn't verse 10 be ON Earth, instead of In Earth???
  • Lucy
    Its about what you do silently with your heart that counts not what you say ...
  • Matthew Mutua
    It only makes sense to look up to God's restraints concerning charity. Why blow one's own trumpet?

    If only we could be committed to doing the right thing in disregard of recognition...

    This chapter encourages us to wait for the most important thing: God's reward during the messiah's second coming.
