People's Bible Notes for Romans 15:17


Ro 15:17 I have therefore whereof I may glory. Because of his wonderfully successful ministry among the Gentiles. Yet he glories not in himself, but only "through Jesus Christ". See 1Co 15:31. In those things which pertain to God. In his ministry as an apostle of Christ.

    ROMANS 15:4 for whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope MARK 8:35 FOR WHOSOEVER WILL SAVE HIS LIFE SHALL LOSE IT BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL LOSE HIS LIFE --- FOR MY SAKE AND THE GOSPELS --- THE SAME SHALL SAVE IT

    Brethen love ye one another as Jesus loves us theres no greater in this world other than the Love of Jesus and his blood shed for us amen

    Paul wanted the Christians in Rome to know that he planned to visit there! Both Jews and Gentiles were recipent’s of his letter. He emphasizes that man's justification before God depends on the mercy of Christ and not on the law of Moses. Paul gives his reason for the Epistle and review some of their characteristics. Various personal greetings are extended in
    conclusion of this writing!
