Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 5:7


5:7 For we cannot clearly see him in this life, wherein we walk by faith only: an evidence, indeed, that necessarily implies a kind of seeing him who is invisible; yet as far beneath what we shall have in eternity, as it is above that of bare, unassisted reason.

    Jesus Christ gave Himself as a ransom for many. We take communion in remembrance of His death. He paid the ultimate price for the sin of all mankind. We will be judged according to how we judge others. We are to look at ourselves to see if we are in right standing with God. Is our hearts right with Him? God loves us and gave His only begotten Son that we might be saved.

    Jesus Christ gave Himself as a ransom for many. We being born again of the Spirit, not flesh, are a new creation in Him. Old things have passed away. Behold all things become new. We are to take communion in remembrance of His death. We are all God's children. We die to our old ways and become new in Christ Jesus. We should look at ourselves before we judge someone else. We'll be judged the same.
