People's Bible Notes for Matthew 18:22


Mt 18:22 Until seventy times seven. That is, there should be no limit at which it shall be refused if it is asked in the spirit of sincere penitence. By reference to Lu 17:4, one can see the condition of forgiveness. It is that the offender professes "repentance". We are to forgive men their trespasses on the same condition that God forgives us ours, and he does not forgive the impenitent. Our mercy must be just as unlimited as that of God.

    Jesus said that his disciple must be like little children. Little children are humble and teachable and we must be like them in this way.
  • Wayne
    Jesus says, v. 3 except you b converted and become as little a child, you shall not enter the kingdom of Heaven. There is no merit in just acting like a child.
  • Lilian
    Jesus will save us unless we accept him as the son of the living God .Jesus loves to call us his lil children who are innocent that needs a Father to love him. Thank you Jesus for your blood your love , grace and mercy it always follows me all the days of my life. Help us Lord to be born again in spirit all the days of my life from your word you have given me life. Praise you and i will worship u

    Although I'm not a Christian, it's nice to know that Jesus approves of my child-like behavior. When I play with my Star Wars Lego sets I become child-like even though I'm 38 years old and thus I enter a spiritual state of mind that can be called heaven...

    PRAISE THE LORD JESUS WHO WAS SENT TO EARTH TO DIE IN OUR PLACE AND HE WAS SENT BY HIS FATHER WHO IS GOD. There is nothing on this earth we can do if we want to see Jesus one day but to do and live by his Word everything else is vanity and Act chapter 2 V 38 when U follow that first then you will be Saved. Then study the word and the bible will show yoU how to live ask Jesus to lead u to a Church were he wants U to be .because preacher are not like they use to be most of them now just want Money they will not help the people that need help but only help themselves Jesus is not please we shall reap what we Sow Amen
