Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Luke 14:26


14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father - Comparatively to Christ: yea, so as actually to renounce his field, oxen, wife, all things, and act as if he hated them, when they stand in competition with him. #Mt 10:37|.


People's Bible Notes for Luke 14:26


Lu 14:26,27 If any [man] come to me. See notes on Mt 10:37,38. Hate not his father. In just the same sense that he hates "his own life also". That is, these must all be given up, turned away from, if we have to choose between them and Christ.

    Jim Hill: I hope all things are well. No matter why we walked away? The Father has opened Arms, waiting for our return! All his children one time or another sIn. Not like we did before salvation, for in Christ we sin a lot less! Thank you Lord for 1John 1:9. Some of us even take a walk for one day,one week, one year--? The Father is calling tenderly,gingerly come home. The end is in sight

    E.Lesser:Matthew 22, Luke 14:16-24 is about non-believers being invited to come to the supper prepared for whosoever is on the list. Most are too busy to be bothered they are on Broadway Matthew7:13. If you're not on the guest list "Revelations20.15".
    Have you been invited? John6:44,ready 1John 1:9,Matthew3:11.
    You will know !! 2nd Corinthians5:17. What a day that will be!
    Never ending never
