Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:12


1:12 That is, I long to be comforted by the mutual faith both of you and me - He not only associates the Romans with, but even prefers them before, himself. How different is this style of the apostle from that of the modern court of Rome!


People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:12


Ro 1:12 That is. Such a result would minister to the mutual comfort of Paul and the church. If they are "established", he will be comforted in them. The idea is that his faith will be a comfort and strength to them, and he will be encouraged and strengthened by their faith. Thus they will be mutual helpers. How different the humble apostolic style of address from that of a Roman bishop!

Discussion for Romans 1

    The Natural affection in 1:31 means LOVE. So without natural affection means hatred. It can also mean that, scientifically, naturally positive attracts negative. Unlike poles should repel but that is not the case today. Men are attracted to men and likewise the woman. Verse 32 says, not only those who do or engage themselves in such things are worthy of death but also those who approve of it.

    I LOVE ROMANS 1:12!!
  • Rena
    Verse 4 of this chapter is the key to understanding that the book of Romans compares and contrasts the sinful Adamic nature of mankind to the Holy nature of Jesus, God's Son. His Holiness is the basis for His resurrection, mankind's salvation, and our daily walk with Him.

    For therein the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith. The Just shall live by faith.

    ROMANS 1:18 FOR THE WRATH OF GOD IS REVEALED FROM HEAVEN AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN WHO HOLD THE TRUTH IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS
  • Randy
    Hey there Austin! Yep, I hear what you're saying. It's funny, because the god they worship doesn't mind their godlessness. And they think they are moral. Verse 28 sure fits. Don't know your email.
