Wesley's Notes for Romans 13:14


13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ - Herein is contained the whole of our salvation. It is a strong and beautiful expression for the most intimate union with him, and being clothed with all the graces which were in him. The apostle does not say, Put on purity and sobriety, peacefulness and benevolence; but he says all this and a thousand times more at once, in saying, Put on Christ. And make not provision - To raise foolish desires, or, when they are raised already, to satisfy them.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 13:14


Ro 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ. For the way to put on Christ, see Ga 3:27. To put on Christ is to enter into fellowship with him. He who is in fellowship with Christ cannot fulfill the lusts of the flesh. "He walks after the Spirit, and not after the flesh" (Ro 8:1).

    Romans 13:4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. If we speak the truth about the Word and someone bring evil to us, God have mercy on them. Hebrews 4:12 THE WORD OF GOD

    Lu2677; This is a VERY important subject so applicable for us today. Many are turned aside from the commandments of the Saviour by hearkening to voices in the world, which say we must stand and fight for our rights. With respect to the Military and the Police, that's there job by God's appointment. But for us as individuals, we follow Jesus' example of love, piety, faith and meekness toward all.

    Roman 13:1 "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers (government).For there are no powers but of God,(our government is put in place by God).The powers that be, are ordained by God." This chapter is telling us to give honor,give tribute,love,submit,owe nothing to government officials. Regardless of what they do. His word stands!
