Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:12


10:12 The same Lord of all is rich - So that his blessings are never to be exhausted, nor is he ever constrained to hold his hand. The great truth proposed in #Ro 10:11 is so repeated here, and in #Ro 10:13|, and farther confirmed, #Ro 10:14,15|, as not only to imply, that whosoever calleth upon him shall be saved; but also that the will of God is, that all should savingly call upon him.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:12


Ro 10:12 For there is no difference between Jew and Greek. The Jew objected to salvation, instead of by the law. Paul has just shown that righteousness could not be obtained by the law, secondly, that the prophets had predicted salvation by faith. But the Jew is now supposed to object that this salvation was for Jews only, yet Paul is preaching it to the Gentiles. Hence he declares that it is for Greek (Gentile), as well as Jew, as shown by the passage just quoted in Ro 10:11. It says, "Every one that believeth", etc. (Isa 28:16). He further shows in Ro 10:13 that the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him, of whatever race, by a second quotation from the prophets, found in Joe 2:32.

Discussion for Romans 10

  • Jonathan Timmons
    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved is the first part of it. This chapter expressed to call on the name of the lord/confess it. This means that you have transformed. Transformation is a total turn of events in your life. This means to give up your old ways and put on the new. This means to not go back and do what you were doing.

  • Irene123
    The book of Romans was written to the church in Rome, but not the one that is predominant there now. This EARLY church was established after Acts 2:38 was preached by Peter. The ch. in Rome had already gone thru Acts 2:38; this letter is an 'epistle', which simply means letter, a letter of further instruction for their life long walk with Jesus. V. 9 refers to DAILY acknowledging Him in prayer.
