Wesley's Notes for Romans 2:11

2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God - He will reward every one according to his works. But this is well consistent with his distributing advantages and opportunities of improvement, according to his own good pleasure.

People's Bible Notes for Romans 2:11

Ro 2:11 There is no respect of persons. Greek, as well as Jew, if he works good, shall have the same blessed rewards. Compare Ac 10:34,35. God is impartial in the blessings conferred (see Mt 5:45), as well as in his punishments.

Discussion for Romans 2

  • William Wynn
    Verse 29 explains the chapter as it pertains to the works of the flesh!
  • Ray321
    Romans 2:1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself for thou that judgest doest the same things. This is proof that Christians do sin and need cleansing by the Word.
  • A disciple
    This chapter does not say that we are all arrogant hypocrites; but it does most effectively penetrate to the innermost thoughts and intents of our hearts, that we work so hard to hide from others, but God knows. Resting in one's being a Jew, or belonging to such and such Church, or anything whereby we might think we're better than our neighbor doesn't release us, but makes us the more accountable.
  • BSP
    Verses 21 through 24 shows that there is a danger that the ones who are supposed to be teaching may be the very one with hypocritical actions.
  • Ray321
    Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God, Paul was not of shame of it. All we have to do is believe it.
  • Douglas Gilbert Wells
    It is what in the heart that counts
