Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:7


1:7 To all that are in Rome - Most of these were heathens by birth, #Ro 1:13|, though with Jews mixed among them. They were scattered up and down in that large city, and not yet reduced into the form of a church. Only some had begun to meet in the house of Aquila and Priscilla. Beloved of God - And from his free love, not from any merit of yours, called by his word and his Spirit to believe in him, and now through faith holy as he is holy. Grace - The peculiar favour of God. And peace - All manner of blessings, temporal, spiritual, and eternal. This is both a Christian salutation and an apostolic benediction. From God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ - This is the usual way wherein the apostles speak, God the Father, God our Father. Nor do they often, in speaking of him, use the word Lord, as it implies the proper name of God, Jehovah. In the Old Testament, indeed, the holy men generally said, The Lord our God; for they were then, as it were, servants; whereas now they are sons: and sons so well know their father, that they need not frequently mention his proper name. It is one and the same peace, and one and the same grace, which is from God and from Jesus Christ. Our trust and prayer fix on God, as he is the Father of Christ; and on Christ, as he presents us to the Father.

Let it be noted that this section, written, as admitted by skeptical critics, less than thirty years after the crucifixion, by Paul, to a body of believers at a distance from Judea, affirms the main facts of the Gospels: (1) That Jesus was the Son of God. (2) That he took upon himself our nature. (3) That he displayed divine power. (4) That he was raised from the dead. (5) That men are saved by the obedience of the faith.

    Who changed the truth of God into a lie...vs.25. What is the lie? To find out, check out what the father of lies says. Satan accuses the brethren of sin day and night before the throne. Jesus says He took away all of our sin. I know whom I believe!

    Romans 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh Jesus had sinful flesh like we do. But Jesus never sinned. Jesus had his Father's in Heaven blood. Jesus was ready to become the Savior for our sins. Thank you Jesus.

    "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:" We hear and read that God made the world, and that He rules in the kingdoms of men. This part in Romans 1 describes very specifically that every man's life is made by God, according to what kind of man.
