People's Bible Notes for Matthew 19:18


Mt 19:18,19 Thou shalt do no murder. The Lord passes over the first four of the ten commandments, throws the young man back to his relations with his fellow-men, compels him to give an account of his moral goodness, and after keeping the letter of the moral commands, still to confess his sense of a lack.

Discussion for Matthew 19

  • One who came
    Jesus of Nazareth, when thou returnest to redeem thy own, beware of false profits and hypocrits who cite you as master but only have evil in their hearts, and those in power who manipulate weak minds to achieve their sinister ends; and bless those who do not think liars are innocent of evil intent but rightly discern truth as thou hast spoken yourself against the corrupt power in 33AD, and come!
  • A disciple
    To: Matthew Chapter 19 - Comment by "Bookreadingismything" on 2/14/2017; Proverbs 14:10 "The heart knows his own bitterness; and a stranger does not intermeddle with his joy." Our pains and hurts by others matter to the Lord; He knows our sorrows, for they are His sorrows. Forgiving and releasing someone so close, of such a hurt, is a sacrifice of righteousness, and as incense going up to God.
  • A disciple
    Anne; The yielding and surrendering of the will: the part of "walking in the Spirit" that must deny self; the part of "walking in love" that seeks not its own things; thank you for the clarification. When the Lord Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane about to be betrayed, He yielded and surrendered to the evil that was about to come upon Him, as from the Father's hand. His faith worked by love.
  • Anne
    A Disciple: I agree with you about conversion/repentance but surrendering fully to God to me is to live as stated in Gal.2:20.
  • A disciple
    Anne; Where in the Bible do you ever read that the Lord Jesus asks for OUR acceptance? And where ever in the Bible do you read that God says to "surrender" to Him? The word is, REPENTANCE; and it is what we do when we are CONVERTED! You may forgive my bluntness, but that kind of language DOES NOT COME FROM THE WORD OF GOD! If you're really and truly saved, then that means you must be converted!
  • Anne
    Whatever is hindering us from surrendering fully to God, we must get rid of it and with the help of God we can. With God all things are possible.
