Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Romans 3:24


3:24 And are justified - Pardoned and accepted. Freely - Without any merit of their own. By his grace - Not their own righteousness or works. Through the redemption - The price Christ has paid. Freely by his grace - One of these expressions might have served to convey the apostle's meaning; but he doubles his assertion, in order to give us the fullest conviction of the truth, and to impress us with a sense of its peculiar importance. It is not possible to find words that should more absolutely exclude all consideration of our own works and obedience, or more emphatically ascribe the whole of our justification to free, unmerited goodness.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 3:24


Ro 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace. All who believe upon Jesus Christ have their sins thus blotted out, being freely, as a divine gift, justified (that is, counted just, or sinless) by grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Christ redeems the sinner who puts his trust in him. His blood pays the debt that the sinner owes to justice. Since Christ, the sinless One, has suffered for sin, God will accept his suffering for the debt of those who love and trust in him.

Discussion for Romans 3

  • Irene123
    Bruce - Of course I knew that, and so does Mike Wms. I agree, it could have been stated better - now that you made me look at it from a different angle. But, the 'main' point of the statement is not the redeeming, but the ecumenical 'reforming' of the world. That's what Ch. Sheldon wanted to do. He just didn't understand 'salvation'.
  • Bruce
    Irene: Christ is The only One who Redeems. Without His Blood there's no Salvation. Verse 24 says: Redemption is in Christ Jesus. The Mission of True Believers is to Tell Others The Way of Salvation. We are The The Only Light in this World of Darkness

    Rom. 3:24 - "Our mission is to redeem humanity, not to reform society" -- Mike Williams
  • Lu2677
    Bruce,I believe the verses you gave."fearful","spirit of fear"could be referring to worldly things.I will hold fast to:Luke 12:4"Jesus said,And I say to you my friends, be not afraid of them that kill the body,and after that have no more that they can do." 5."But I will forwarn you whom ye shall fear:Fear him, whom after hath killed hath power to cast into hell.Yea,I say unto you fear him
  • Bruce
    Lu2677: For God hath not given us The Spirit of "Fear";but of power,and of love and of a sound mind. 2Timothy1:7 / But the "Fearful",and unbelieving---- and idolaters and all liars,shall have their part in The Lake which burneth with Fire and Brimstone: which is the second death. Revelation 21:8 / Fear says one needs a Savior! / Let us---come boldly unto The Throne of Grace---. Hebrews 4:16
  • Duke
    In this chapter, Paul posits that faith in God through Jesus Christ obviates the law. But this concept muddies the waters in that there is no concretion to the concept of faith. How is faith measured. It is self declared mostly by born again who feel enpowered now to ban the right of woman to chose what happens in their own bodies and who can marry who. Hypocrites!
