Bible commentary

Discussion for Matthew 7

  • Not by good deeds, but through Christ are we saved. There is no other way. That's why He died on the cross, for our sins. If there is another way then Christ would have died in vain.
  • Musasizi bruno for verse 7
    May God's will always be done
  • Chris roper for verse 26
    as one preacher dealt with he said 'how you build is how you live'! if on the sand you will shift and be as reubn unstable as water! you will be as one that is tossed with every wind of doctrine! but if built on the rock there is a firm foundation stablness steady, not moved easily but as a tree planted by the water
  • Schevauun for verse 6
    An atheist or unbeliever have no use for the word of God,it is foolishness to them,so it's not appreciated or welcomed.
  • These verses in context are talking about law and grace. BOTH gates are leading to heaven but one is through works or self efforts and the other is through grace faith in Jesus' works . Jesus is the GATE and he is referencing the SAME GATE in Mathew 7 both times. Romans speaks of the two types of Christians Jews and Gentiles and God says He will receive both however the carnal Christians Back then it was the Jews will live a destructive life here on Earth remember Paul pronounced a curse when he saw they were STILL teaching this after Jesus because you have to be perfect if you want to be under the law. Those under Grace who have a revelation of their freedom with ALLLL of GOD's promises aren't to flaunt our freedom where it would cause others to anger. offend in one area and you're guilty of breaking them all. By destructive I mean sickness with no healing cancer , no miracles seen that you can't apply logic to, just bad things in general that happen to Christians that are NOT supposed to happen but we accept these things because we have a form of Godliness and deny His power. Political correctness is of the world and you are not OF THE WORLD. Jesus said we would do all the things he did and more. Miracles are happening guys and we have POWER! If ALL OF GOD's PROMISES aren't happening in your life and you're just waiting for your heavenly home when you die, something isn't right.
  • We need to build up in God's word that we can be strong against the enemy. No word no power. Don't build on things in the world you will fall. Build on a solid foundation which is in Christ Jesus
