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

  • Stephen F. Zielski
    As it was in the Kingdom of Heaven so will it be in like manner in the latter days of the Kingdom of God - Acts through Jude. Always the religious people who reject the indwelling Power of our Blessed Lords Holy Ghost which is speaking in Tongues made of the true and genuine Temple without hands unto His Everlasting Glory to come amen indeed. The Kingdom of God is not of this world and never was.

    Faith is the key to unlock the door to heaven.

    Yes we need to ONLY trust in the blood of Jesus but if while were trusting we seemingly "sin" as life under law would say, we must understand we are no less righteous or worthy of God then we were 10 minutes before we missed God. And that is where the devil is messing with the church and messing them up. Jesus said I wish you were either hot or cold. Don't try to mix law with grace. Your Righteous
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The Word of God confirms that "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus". We should depend ONLY on Jesus' Blood to wipe away our sins and unrighteousness.
  • Charles B Mountain
    Because God's chosen people,the Jews, rejected Christ as the messiah,he opened the the door of salvation to the Gentiles also. We are all one in Christ Jesus,if we believe and are baptized into Christ, according to the plan of salvation, and live our life by his word.Using God's word, as it is written, to govern our lives and guide us,all may experience Christianity and be acceptable.
  • 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'.
