People's Bible Notes for Romans 4:25

Ro 4:25 Who was delivered for our offences. "He died for us" (Ro 5:8 1Th 5:10); "was made sin for us" (2Co 5:21). He was to be "cut off, but not for himself" (Da 9:26). Raised again for our justification. The resurrection of Christ was his own justification against the condemnation of the world. In his justification, all for whom he died, who have laid hold on him by faith and are found in him, are justified with him, in that their sins are forgiven. Without the resurrection, the sepulcher of Christ would be the grave of all our hopes. This is beautifully symbolized in baptism. "We are buried by baptism into death" (Ro 6:4), his death, "planted in the likeness of his death" (Ro 6:5), figuratively die with him. We are also "planted in the likeness of his resurrection" (Ro 6:5). We rise with him, "new creatures" (2Co 5:17), justified by his resurrection.

Discussion for Romans 4

  • Joshua Butamen for verse 17
    Romance 4:7 put us to the level of God and we operate as such...calling things which be not as though they are....this is God at work in man...
  • While new and some not so new Christians mature, they still struggle with sin, and stumble at times. They WILL be all that God has predestined them to be, and the Lord will chasten them as a loving Father. Their lives are hid in Christ, indeed must be, because if they were NOT "under the blood ", they would not be able to stand before the Lord should God take them at His appointed time Heb.9:27 . David agonized for several months while he battled with his conscience, but he was never lost. He called on the Lord to restore the JOY of God 's salvation in Psalm 5:12, not the salvation itself. His chastening was finally complete when the prophet Nathan confronted him. The penalty for our sin has been paid in full by the work of Christ on the cross. "For if we sin WILFULLY, after that we have received the knowledge of the truth there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins " Heb 10:26, KJV . Those that are born and led of the Spirit will NEVER sin willfully again. They are sealed and kept by God, as David was. When this truth is embedded in the heart, we are able to trust God implicitly and know that they are His forever!
  • Lewis Johnson for verse 17
    I 'm HEALED in JESUS NAME. I am HEALED by faith that be not as though it is. I 'm HEALED despite circumstances. The doctor says I need SURGERY. GOD says HE has ALREADY HEALED me, AMEN
  • John Falkner
    I am so thankful that God called Paul to preach to the gentiles .His explanation here of salvation by faith and not by works is so plain. Also the way he shows Gods Grace to all not to the Jew only but to the Gentiles as well,What a Blessing.Thank You Lord
  • We cannot look at what we see in the natural, but believe what God 's word says and speak it continuously. If we believe, speak and act the Word is true. Faith is the substance...speak it into existance, no matter how it looks.
