People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:10


Ro 1:10 Making request. One of his petitions was that God might permit him to visit the church at Rome. While at Ephesus he had said, "I must also see Rome" (Ac 19:21). His prayers were granted, but not in the way that he now expected. When he went to Rome it was as "the prisoner of the Lord" (Eph 4:1).

Discussion for Romans 1

  • Mark Rasbury
    Salvation is for all who believes as it states in verse 16. This is a great reminder that the Lord loves everyone.
  • Bruce
    John: Thank you John for your testimony. We are the light of the world! Most churches are in a sea of darkness! If others can see Christ in us then there's hope they can get off the Broadway.
  • John
    Rom. 1:15,16 says "I am ready to declare or preach the gospel unto you." Numberous authorities and Barna polls show that less than 2% of the church share their faith. Shame on Us. If we say that we love the world than we must tell our neighbours that God has appointed a Day when He will judge the World in righteousness. Baking a pie won't do it. It is declaring the Gospel that is the Power of God.
  • Felicia
    Verse 20
    It is true that Jesus Christ can only be found in scripture but you can see the fingerprint of God everywhere in creation. If we reject God's existence, it may not be because of lack of evidence but it is because we have too much of it and we don't want to acknowledge it. Thank you Lord for your long suffering. Forgive us for provoking you all the time. You are a great God Jehovah!
  • Irene123
    AMEN and again - AMEN!!! Tony Searight. Thank-you, His people care about the youth!!
  • Antonio
    Romans (the Book as a whole) is a treatise in itself. I read the ROMANS thinking it was for Roman Catholics, that some bishop had written for "us" it had a powerful effect in me. I came to Christ. Romans 1 tells me of the "imputed righteousness" which comes as a result of faith.
    verse 1:4 that Jesus resurected and is alive. and the gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation for all.
