Gather together


This is something that needs to be looked at and understood better. As I looked deeper into Matthew 18:19-20, the first thing that stuck me was this part of these verses:
“Concerning anything you ask”
Any is “pas,” which is all, the whole.
Thing is “pragma,” which is defined as a thing done, a deed, action; a matter, an affair.
So when taken in this context is not asking for literally anything, it is more specific to asking for the blessing of God when seeking to accomplish a set goal for the glory of God, through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. Seeking after and asking for earthly rewards, which many construe this to mean is actually contrary to the teachings of the Bible, which clearly states that we are not to seek after our rewards from God in this temporal existence but for our eternal life we are yet to live.
This also shows the true intent of why we are to gather together. To accomplish the teachings within the Bible. The true intent is through faith and works, thus agreement in a specific task towards God’s glory, which is shown to us within the Bible itself.
Ponder and think about this, and then decide what is truly important when gathering together.
Matthew 18:19 “I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. 20 For where two or three gather together in my name. I am there among them.”
