Wesley's Notes for Romans 15:13


15:13 Now the God of hope - A glorious title of God, but till now unknown to the heathens; for their goddess Hope, like their other idols, was nothing; whose temple at Rome was burned by lightning. It was, indeed, built again not long after, but was again burned to the ground.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 15:13


Ro 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace. Paul has quoted from Isaiah, "In him shall the Gentiles trust" (Ro 15:12), and follows it by a prayer that the God who has given them the blessed hope may fill them with joy and peace, so that they may abound in hope. The hope we have in Christ is the source of a great part of our joy.

Discussion for Romans 15

  • A disciple
    "The GOD of Hope!" All our immaturity and stupidity can be corrected and healed, so that we truly become "A Man (or Woman) after His own heart." Our own individual weakness and inadequacy is the very thing by which the Lord's strength is made perfect: especially in showing the world, that His grace has nothing to do with men's estimations and opinions about us. Jesus is our HOPE, and our Victory!

    Verses 1 and 2 shows that Christians with more experience should be more patient with those who were not yet firmly rooted in the truth. We should consider others in the choices we make.
