Notes
Verse 14 admonish about what? - The Gospel! How? - First, to know the Gospel as Paul has presented in the letter and then remind each other of the gospel in all circumstances as it applies. It's no doubt hard to apply Gospel thinking if one doesn't know and isn't saturated with it. But Paul was confident that the Roman believers were well equipt even without his letter to counsel each other with the Gospel. This counseling is not a one man's job. The whole body is involved, though some have a special gift in it. Verses 15-16 Remembrance of the Gospel is the means by which believers are sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
Isa 52
The Servant that Israel expected was one that would free them from the oppression of the Romans. They did not expect that the Servant would suffer at His coming as also promised in Isaiah. The exaltation of the Servant came through awful suffering. His face and form as men were disfigured. As awful his sufferings, so awesome the promise to cleanse the Gentile nations from their sins. The Gentiles did not see or consider the Servant at that point, but that changed after His sufferings, and over the last 2000 years. The exultation of the name of the Lord Jesus spread over the whole globe. Matthew 24:14 says that when the work of reaching the nations is completed, then the end will come and He will eventually return in the glory which Israel expected at His first coming. Paul's life is like that of the Lord Jesus. The Lord was about fulfilling the promises of God and so was Paul. What promises of God are fulfilled in your life?
Isa 52
OT
Isaiah 52:13-15
Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently;
He shall be exalted
and extolled
and be very high.
progression
Just as many were astonished at you,
So His visage was marred more than any man,
And His form more than the sons of men;
So shall He sprinkle many nations.
Kings shall shut their mouths at Him;
series
For what had not been told them they shall see,
And what they had not heard they shall consider.
