Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 19:26


19:26 Jesus looking upon them - To compose their hurried spirits. O what a speaking look was there! Said to them - With the utmost sweetness: With men this is impossible - It is observable, he does not retract what he had said: no, nor soften it in the least degree, but rather strengthens it, by representing the salvation of a rich man as the utmost effort of Omnipotence.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 19:26


Mt 19:26 With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. This means that human efforts alone cannot save a man. The young man was zealous in keeping the commandments, but there was a great lack. The grace of God only can save. It can break down the trust in wealth, take away the love of wealth, and fill the heart with the love of Christ. It is "the love of money", not money, that is the root of all evil. See 1Ti 6:10. A pauper may love money as much as a millionaire.

    To disciple on 2/20 - It's still troubling you - the eye of the needle. It was just a comment on my part; has nothing to do with salvation (Acts 2:37-38). Please, let the Lord put your mind at ease about - and go on with Him from faith to faith; God Bless you, disciple.

    Maya Angelou quote - "Somehow we have come to the erroneous belief that we are all but flesh, blood and bones, and that's all. So we direct our values to material things." Matt. 19:22; Lk.18:23.

    Honour thy Mother and thy Father and love your neighbour as i have love you what a beautiful word. Obedience to God's words are more important than sacrifice. If you love Jesus you will keep his commandments till rapture. Thanks to your blood Jesus and help me to be born again in spirit.
