People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:9


Ro 1:9 For. This introduces a reason for his thankfulness. He feels so deep an interest in the cause of Christ in that great center that he prays for them daily. Serve with my spirit. Not an outward service, but of the whole heart, soul and life, in the gospel to which he is consecrated. The spirit is the highest part of a man's nature, and service with the spirit is the highest service. Make mention of you always. So, too, of the Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Thessalonians. See Eph 1:15,16 Php 1:3 Col 1:3 1Th 1:2. Such statements show the deep solicitude of the apostle for the saints.

    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; thats why people separated of God make a high deep in the worst of their humanity, that why sometimes we listen about horrible news.

    Romans 1:28-32 (Even these people will some day do the following) Isaiah 45:23,Romans 14:11,Philipians 2:10, V.11 says"And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Whether they will be doing it in heaven or hell; God will judge.
  • A disciple
    A right understanding of the truth of God in Christ, will answer every miscalculation of men's thinking. The fact is, that God is absolutely going to "force" the world to submit under His Son Jesus Christ; and our assurance of this, is that He has raised Jesus from the dead and given Him ALL AUTHORITY in heaven and on earth, and the Name above every name!We repent because we are warned in advance.
