People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:25


Ro 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie. By giving up the worship of the great unseen God to worship an idol; a creature, rather than the Creator. At first, idols were probably designed as only representations, but they finally became objects of worship. Just so, the images in Roman Catholic churches were intended at first as helps in worship, but have become to great multitudes really idols.

    Verses 11, 12 talk about the encouraging and positive results of meeting together with fellow believers. We not only receive encouragement but we want to make sure to give it to others to help them be firm in the faith.

    Faith is pleasing to God : Faith is the righteousness of God : Jesus is our righteousness and Jesus walked in Faith toward God : It is from Faith to Faith : This is a continual walk with God : You cannot have faith without being obedient to what you hear : Doing : From Faith to Faith . If you be willing and obedient , you shall eat the good of the land .

    In Romans 1 Paul humble himself explaining his call as an apostle in a servant manner. He do not boast about being a called apostle by God but a servant called of God. He greet them by telling of their faithful and how the whole world knew of it. We learn much just reading and meditating on Chapter 1. We learn of our indebtedness to all people, and that all have a need of Salvation. God be praised
