Wesley's Notes for Romans 15:13


15:13 Now the God of hope - A glorious title of God, but till now unknown to the heathens; for their goddess Hope, like their other idols, was nothing; whose temple at Rome was burned by lightning. It was, indeed, built again not long after, but was again burned to the ground.

Ro 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace. Paul has quoted from Isaiah, "In him shall the Gentiles trust" (Ro 15:12), and follows it by a prayer that the God who has given them the blessed hope may fill them with joy and peace, so that they may abound in hope. The hope we have in Christ is the source of a great part of our joy.

    I appreciate 7:15, Satan knows that we have sinful tendencies, and he tries to induce us to cater to them. It then becomes a challenge to maintain our integrity. So we have to work hard to act and correct matters.

    True believers do not teach about God , but believe that He is and live His Word all of it, know they are pilgrims, not faultfinders, believers in the blood of Jesus and forgive, believe God provides before we ask and will stand with me as I walk out faith until I receive what He has provided, bold, thankful and loving worshippers who sing to Him not about Him, Jesus is Lord, Maranatha.
