Matthew 18:18-20 -- On Heaven and Earth

"Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."
Matthew 18:18-20

The beginning of this is likely talking about the sealing power, because that is the same way it is talked about elsewhere... but it also seems interesting from a "this is not temporary" standpoint. A reminder that what we do on earth very much matters to our eternity. In that context it is also interesting to move on to the next verses about people agreeing together about things, and having God in the midst, because it seems like that is the overall lesson here, that we need to agree together and be in tune with God by having the spirit, and that is the way that we synch heaven and earth together a little more, both unifying ourselves with God and getting help from the other side.

Today, let's remember how important it is to have the spirit and to be on the same page with God. Things that will help with that are prayer and scripture study. Let's *also* remember the idea of joining together with others and coming into agreement along with that spirit, which is something that we get more of through family prayer, studying with others, and, importantly, going to church and participating in the lessons there. As we work on these things, our lives will get more heavenly and we'll feel more help from heaven as well. :)
