People's Bible Notes for Romans 5:5


Ro 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed. A hope disappointed would fill with shame, but that we will not be put to shame is shown by the fact that the love of God is shed abroad, diffused in our hearts, by means of his Spirit given us. This may mean that our hearts are filled with the love of God; or it may mean that our hearts are conscious of the love of God. What follows seems to point to the second meaning.

Discussion for Romans 5

  • Brianna
    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.
