Discussion for Matthew 18:11

  • Thank God for the shed blood of Jesus. Now we have been reconciled to the Father by receiving Jesus as our Lord and Saviour.
  • MockingBird for verse 11
    Jesus is the Son of man and the Son of God. He was and is 100 man and 100 Deity . He came to save that which was lost Linda I believe your right Adam allowed Satan to steal , kill and destroy the kingdom of God here on and in earth I had not seen that before Thanks for your comment !! I also was once lost in sin but Jesus took me in. Praise God for His Amazing Grace !!
  • Olabode for verse 11
    God sent Jesus Christ not to come and condemn the world, but the world through him might be saved. He came purposely for the sinners to be saved but not for the righteous people .He gave different illustrations, for example the story of prodigal son, the story of lost sheep etc. He also went further by saying any sinner who repented of his sin here on earth, the heaven rejoices with him.
  • Moses Njenga for verse 11
    HIS name is JESUS YASHUA JEHOVAH IS SAVATION. HE came to set captives free and to destroy the work of the devil.
  • THAT which was lost was the KINGDOM OF GOD LIFE ON EARTH. Jesus LEGALLY restored that to all who will receive HIM,and choose THE WORD OF GOD for our guidance in all things. We are to be witnesses to others of the now-restored Kingdom of God Life....and letting nothing that Jesus died and paid for have been done in vain for each of us....bringing joy to our Lord and glory and honor to ALMIGHTY GOD.
