Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Romans 5:1


5:1 Being justified by faith - This is the sum of the preceding chapters. We have peace with God - Being enemies to God no longer, #Rom 5:10|; neither fearing his wrath, #Rom 5:9|. We have peace, hope, love, and power over sin, the sum of the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth chapters. These are the fruits of justifying faith: where these are not, that faith is not.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 5:1


Ro 5:1 Reconciliation Through Christ SUMMARY OF ROMANS 5: Justification by Faith. Peace, Hope, and Joy. Christ Died for the Ungodly. His Surpassing Love. Death Through Adam's Sin. Life Through Christ's Righteousness. Law and Grace. Therefore being justified by faith. Paul has just shown that men are counted righteous before God, not through obedience to the law, but through faith in Christ. Not law, but faith justifies. The faith that justifies is (1) a faith in Christ; (2) a faith of the heart (Ro 10:9) which brings the whole life into obedience (Ro 1:5). Peace with God. While sinners, we are rebels against God. When our rebellion ceases and we are forgiven we are at peace. This blessed peace with God, which brings peace to the soul, is through Jesus Christ.

    Vs.13 is an interesting fact. It shows that sin was always there, but unless there was a law , that it could not be charged against us. So for Adam and Eve, they had but one law, and broke that law resulting in sin. They could have been doing other sins, but until there was a law against it they could not be charged. I.e. it was only after they ate the fruit that they became ashamed of their nakedness Very interesting scripture.
