Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:15


10:15 But how shall they preach, unless they be sent - Thus by a chain of reasoning, from God's will that the gentiles also should call upon him, St. Paul infers that the apostles were sent by God to preach to the gentiles also. The feet - Their very footsteps; their coming. #Isa 52:7|.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:15


Ro 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? Those must go out to them who have knowledge of the gospel. Hence it was needful that the apostles and evangelists be "sent". Hence Christ said, "Go into all the world and preach to every creature" (Mr 16:15 Mt 28:19). Thus Paul shows the duty was laid upon him to preach to Greek as well as Jew. As it is written. See Isa 52:7. How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel, etc. This message was to the Gentiles blessed tidings, and the passage quoted from Isaiah shows, under a figure, how those would rejoice who believed the glad news. See Ac 13:38.

    So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing Undiluted Word of God.! From the Bible or True Men Of God. Beware, there are many fake words out there..! Lord Help Us daily that we don't fall but stay True to Your Words Only.! For there is Joy when we hear Your True Teachings.. Thank You Jesus..!
  • Lenny
    Amen! Hearing the word of God results in confidence and ambitions about seeking more of God and within this journey faith ignites. My thoughts is, faith is a strong belief. We cannot have faith in ignoring the word of God. The word of God is to continuously be heard by and not be ignored daily.

    It's true, having faith in God's Word brings you peace of mind, and you can mediate and have discernment in the choices you make in your life.
  • MockingBird
    Faith comes by hearing God's word over , and over , and over , and over , and over , and over , again , and again , and again , and again , and again , and again . Once I've heard , it is time to act on that faith and be doing God's word. God expects me to be doing His word as well as hearing His word . I expect God to do things for me and He in turn expects me to do things for Him as in obeying Him !! Praise God Forever more !!
  • Debbie
    Abraham had faith even as he took Isaac to sacrifice him to the Lord, and the Lord provided a ram! God is true to His Word, we never have to be afraid that He will require more of us than we can give. Jesus was His perfect sacrifice for us. God gave it ALL for us so that we can come to Him as we are through Jesus.
