Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:12


1:12 That is, I long to be comforted by the mutual faith both of you and me - He not only associates the Romans with, but even prefers them before, himself. How different is this style of the apostle from that of the modern court of Rome!


People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:12


Ro 1:12 That is. Such a result would minister to the mutual comfort of Paul and the church. If they are "established", he will be comforted in them. The idea is that his faith will be a comfort and strength to them, and he will be encouraged and strengthened by their faith. Thus they will be mutual helpers. How different the humble apostolic style of address from that of a Roman bishop!

Discussion for Romans 1

    Tony:Yes it will. Years back pastors and others would be out inviting people to church, talking about the Lord and the Bible, it was common and accepted. People would receive 4- 12 visits a month from four different churches,plus JW. Today 0-5 maybe! Mostly JW. When "June" happened, shocked, total disbelief?!??!? GOD "did" bless U.S.A the Night cometh, when no man can work

    Vs. 20

    Very simple and makes sense. How can anyone look at the creation of the world and rule out that someone created it? Creation itself should tell you there is an intelligent designer. However, we can not rely on creation to tell us everything about Jehovah God. We must also read his word the Bible as it reveals the character of the Creator.

    ROMANS 1:28 AND EVEN AS THEY DID NOT LIKE TO RETAIN IN THEIR KNOWLEDGE GOD GAVE THEM OVER TO A REPROBATE MIND TO DO THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT CONVENIENT
  • Joan Travick
    Romans 1:1-2 references the scripture wherein GOD said, I will send you pastors and teachers after mine own heart. Paul's calling was a call of election by the WILL
