Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:15


10:15 But how shall they preach, unless they be sent - Thus by a chain of reasoning, from God's will that the gentiles also should call upon him, St. Paul infers that the apostles were sent by God to preach to the gentiles also. The feet - Their very footsteps; their coming. #Isa 52:7|.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:15


Ro 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? Those must go out to them who have knowledge of the gospel. Hence it was needful that the apostles and evangelists be "sent". Hence Christ said, "Go into all the world and preach to every creature" (Mr 16:15 Mt 28:19). Thus Paul shows the duty was laid upon him to preach to Greek as well as Jew. As it is written. See Isa 52:7. How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel, etc. This message was to the Gentiles blessed tidings, and the passage quoted from Isaiah shows, under a figure, how those would rejoice who believed the glad news. See Ac 13:38.

    John 3:27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. Titus 3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
  • Mary Weiser
    It is so very difficult to reach the the hearing of those who care little of Jesus's gospel. Needing nothing, enjoying aggression as entertainment, and blocking out any attempt to even consider there be a better way to live. My very own brother and sister are a classic example. My approach is love and laughter. As for the "hearing impaired " I should send by mail more pictures and letters.

    Whenever we share the word of God we must invite the Holy Spirit to speak on behalf of us the words should come out from God's mouth rather than the knowledge of a man. Lets be aware of the false preacher, the defeated enemy will always give us confusion but Jesus is always there to fight for us. A true preacher is the anointed one and full if grace used by Jesus to share his good news for us.

    Romans chapter 10 is Awesome Paul preaching to the church at Rome which had already obeyed Acts 2:38 telling them to continue to confess Jesus against all the persecution and false doctrine that was coming against the church of that day and they would be saved. God's Word will show you must be born of the water and Spirit John 3:3-5 , Acts 2:4, and 2:38 before we can confess Jesus 1 Cor 12:3

    Faith comes only by hearing the word of God without his words its impossible to please him. Obedience to his words is our salvation . HE who loves Jesus must keep his commandments. Thanks for the blood of Jesus that shed for us thru his blood and his words we received life in abundance thank yoi Lord and praise you forever amen

    I read some comments. I feel that the chapter of Romans is self explanatory. However I feel it takes an open mind and heart to hear and apply the word to ourselves. Reading is great but believing is another. I totally agree and honor the word of God. May God bless.
