Let’s get into the word of the Lord

The disciples argue who would be the greatest.

Verse 1 – 6

The disciples went to Jesus and asked him who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Jesus called a little child and had him stand among them and he said;

I tell you the truth. Unless you change and become more like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Therefore whoever humbles himself like the child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.

And whoever welcomes like this, is in my name welcomes me, but if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large Millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

The process of being childlike is to let go of our private way to be humble and open-hearted

Jesus warns against temptation

Verse 7– 9

The word says,

woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin, these things must come, but won’t to the man to whom they come!

If your hand or foot causes you to sin cut it off and throw it away, it is better for you to enter life maimed or cripple then to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into Eternal fire and if your eyes cause you to sin gauge it out and throw it away it is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.

Hey man! The Lord tells us to cut out things that cause us to send, and that can mean people as well. Would you rather go to hell and be tortured for Eternal or have life that is the question?

Jesus warns against looking down on others

Verse 10 – 14

See that you don’t look down on one of these little ones for I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.

What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the 99 on the hill and go look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it I tell you the truth, he is happier about the one sheep then about the 99 that did not wander off and the same way your father in Heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.

This part of the scripture reminds us that the Lord is looking for his lost sheep.

we are so quick to criticize others about what they are doing, wearing, and whatever sin there is. But truth, why can’t we just guide the sheep back to its Shepherd?

Jesus teaches how to treat a Believer who sins.

Verse 15-20

If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens you have won your brother over, but if he will not listen take one or two others along so that every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three Witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them tell it to the church, and if he refuses to listen even to the church treat him as you would a pagan or tax collector.

What I’m about to tell you is true. What you lock on Earth will be locked in heaven which you unlock on Earth will be unlocked in heaven.

Again here is what I tell you supposed to of you on Earth agree about anything you ask for. My Father in heaven will do it for you where 3 people meet together in my name I am there with them.

Accountability! That’s where we stand not expecting everyone to submit to a gentle nudge or warning the Lord says that if they listen then He will remain your brother / sister but if he doesn’t then he is not for you.

We tend to get angry when people don’t listen to us but the truth is simple and they are not willing to listen then we must leave them where they are.

Allowing their need to not listen will put you in a place of unlocking a simple way on earth a cold heart, take it to prayer, the Lord reminds us when one or more are gathered God is in the Mist amen!

The servant who had no mercy

Verse 21 – 35

The word says Peter came to Jesus and ask them how many times should he forgive someone for sinning against him? Should it be up to seven times?

Jesus answered him

I tell you not seven times but 77 times

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a king who wanted to collect all the money his servant sold him. As the king began to do it, a man who owed him millions of dollars was brought to him. The man was not able to pay him.

So his master gave an order. The man, his wife, his children, and all he and had to be sold to pay back what he old owed.

What servant fell on his knees in front of him give me time he beg I’ll pay everything back.

His master felt sorry for him he gave him what he told and let him go.

But then the servant went out and found one of the other servants who old him a few dollars he grabbed him and began to choke him.

Pay back what you owe me he said.

The other servant fell to his knees give me time, he backs and I’ll pay you back.

But the first servant refused, instead he went and had the man thrown into prison.

the man who would be held there until he could pay back what he owes. The other servants saw what happened. And troubled them greatly, they went and told their Master everything that happened. Then the master called the first servant in. you evil servant he said I forgave all that you owed me because you beg me to you have nomercy on the other servant just like I had mercy on you?

an anger his master turned him over to the jailer he will be punished until he pays back everything he owe.

This is how my Father in heaven will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.

As Believers we forget this Factor. and to some it doesn’t exist.

you can’t expect the father to forgive you if you can’t forgive another 77 times. Because I’m sure the Lord has forgiven you 777,777,777. I’m just saying find it in yout heart to be more like your Father and less like the people who are after the somethings as you. Treating others how they treat you will not get you to righteousness. How can you get to righteousness if you can’t forgive 77 times.

Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.
