Wesley's Notes for Matthew 6:13


6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil - Whenever we are tempted, O thou that helpest our infirmities, suffer us not to enter into temptation; to be overcome or suffer loss thereby; but make a way for us to escape, so that we may be more than conquerors, through thy love, over sin and all the consequences of it. Now the principal desire of a Christian's heart being the glory of God, (ver. 9, 10,) #Mt 6:9,10| and all he wants for himself or his brethren being the daily bread of soul and body, (or the support of life, animal and spiritual,) pardon of sin, and deliverance from the power of it and of the devil, (ver. 11, 12, 13,) #Mt 6:11,12,13| there is nothing beside that a Christian can wish for; therefore this prayer comprehends all his desires. Eternal life is the certain consequence, or rather completion of holiness. For thine is the kingdom - The sovereign right of all things that are or ever were created: The power - the executive power, whereby thou governest all things in thy everlasting kingdom: And the glory - The praise due from every creature, for thy power, and all thy wondrous works, and the mightiness of thy kingdom, which endureth through all ages, even for ever and ever. It is observable, that though the doxology, as well as the petitions of this prayer, is threefold, and is directed to the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost distinctly, yet is the whole fully applicable both to every person, and to the ever - blessed and undivided trinity. #Luke 11:2|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 6:13


Mt 6:13 Lead us not into temptation. The thought is that God may preserve us from temptations that might lead us astray. No man can pray these words who does not try to keep out of temptation. For thine is the kingdom. This clause, called the doxology, is wanting in the oldest and best manuscripts, and undoubtedly an addition by men.

Discussion for Matthew 6

    Its about what you do silently with your heart that counts not what you say ...
  • Luther
    My prayer each day is that I may ever be blinded by Christ's light that I not be distracted by the darkness around me.
  • 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.
  • Ines Humphrey
    Love it,give me strength and motivation to do better! I read chapter 6 every night before going to sleep! A good friend of mine told me about chapter 6 and is really helps me going through hard times!
  • Lucinda Palestrant
    Matthew 6:24 "No man can serve two masters, you will hate one and love the other" If worldly things are put first, and Jesus second, you don't understand this chapter. Turn away from idols.
  • Tunde
    The lord is great , if only people know that Jesus is the first they would not run after the things of the world because he has said " seek the kingdom of God first and every other things shall be added" but now a days people make things of the world first and Jesus the second option. May the lord forgive us all.
