Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:13


10:13 Common to man - Or, as the Greek word imports, proportioned to human strength. God is faithful - In giving the help which he hath promised. And he will with the temptation - Provide for your deliverance.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:13


1Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man. Perhaps the Corinthians thought their temptations were usually severe, but these were only what human nature is exposed to. But God [is] faithful. Will keep every promise, and hence will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able. Will give them strength and deliverance in every temptation if they trust in him. None who devoutly follow Christ, who pray constantly for strength, and trust God, will fall.

    I Thank U Lord For This Comment To follow the Lord without the Holy Spirit is impossible, there for we must go to church and worship him and be fill with the Holy Spirit. Then we can do all things in the Glory of God. Glory be to Jesus. Whatever I do : I must be sure that it will give Glory to my God. I am to follow the example that Jesus left me to walk so as to please my Father and that He may be able to say unto me : Well done thou good and faithful servant. Jesus did all things for God 's glory, never forgetting that he represented and reflected the God whom He loved. We too want to imitate Jesus example. It doesn t matter what you are doing whether eating drinking or doing anything else but make sure you are doing it to the Glory of God
  • Saraha

    In 1 Corinthians 10:31, Paul says that whatever we do for this body, its fruit would be limited i.e. only until we live i this world. But, when we do it for the Glory of God, it gives fruit not only for this life, but also the greatest gift which is unlimited when we enter into the eternal life.
