People's Bible Notes for Matthew 18:19


Mt 18:19 If two of you shall agree. Two shall constitute a Christian fellowship. The united prayers of this fellowship for any legitimate object shall be heard. The assurance of this is found in the fact that Christ will be present wherever two or three are gathered in his name.

    the text is very clear that God's presence is in those who gather in His name regardless of number. It shows that God is not after the number of people in a gathering because of His name like bible studies, prayer meeting, etc. And He did not say that if you are alone praying He is not with...

Nowhere in the Bible does it state that we must report to a designated building to worship him...

    Jesus teaches us in this chapter to cut of anything or anyone who tempts us in life. But also a few verses down He teaches that if he is our brother or sister in Christ, before we cut them of there are steps of trying to help them. If those steps don't work, only then cut them off. Praise God for this wisdom!

  • Obbie Beal
    35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses. (at home, in the streets, jobs, daily we fight with with anger because from the heart we are tempted to not-forgive as direct by Jehovah /GOD. Wow! Wow! Wow!
