Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:18


10:18 But their unbelief was not owing to the want of hearing For they have heard. Yes verily - So many nations have already heard the preachers of the gospel, that I may in some sense say of them as David did of the lights of heaven. #Psa 29:4|


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:18


Ro 10:18 Have they not heard? Who are alluded to? Both Jews and Gentiles. The objector might say, Well, if faith comes by hearing, so few have heard that we are not responsible for our unbelief. Nay, says the apostle, the opportunity to hear has been very widely extended. In the language of the Psalmist Ps 19:4, Their sound went into all the earth. The sound of the preachers of the gospel. And their words unto the ends of the world. When the vast multitude converted on Pentecost were scattered to their homes, they carried the gospel into all parts of the civilized world. Paul was now writing to the church in Rome, where no apostle had ever been.

    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..!

    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.
