Wesley's Notes for Romans 12:13


12:13 Communicate to the necessities of the saints - Relieve all Christians that are in want. It is remarkable, that the apostle, treating expressly of the duties flowing from the communion of saints, yet never says one word about the dead. Pursue hospitality - Not only embracing those that offer, but seeking opportunities to exercise it.

Discussion for Romans 12

  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    Hearken now, ye men, unto my Holy Father. No lie is of the truth: and no truth is of a liar. Know ye not that the wicked, full of envy as they await condemnation, shew false strength and courage as they desire to lead ye to their own eternal damnation? For they who hate Christ hate his chosen. So hate pride and learn of Christ. Confess your sins then believe the truth. Turn yourselves and live ye.

    This chapter means so much to me; it shows how to live a true Christian life, and how to stand in the service of God, and I love every aspect of it.
  • J.J. Simms
    It is our job as Christians to be dutiful, like-minded and business focused on the Life of Christ. we know and accept that this world is wicked but we are not to be a part of the wickedness. in every darkness even the smallest light shines bright, it is our job to be as bright as we can.
