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.

    I think. Romans 3 means that if you've accepted the Lord as your savior and die in your sin he is just to forgive you do to your lack of knowledge.When you know no better you do know better.When you know better you fo better.Do you think your earthly father will abandon you because you do wrong.No.Well your heavenly father loves you more.He's a merciful God.Love covers a multitude of sin.

    This verse shows that every person living has sinned. We have all inherited sin from our imperfect ancestors, Adam and Eve.
  • Spencer
    The Fear of The Lord is reverence and obedience. Bowing our heads in prayer, kneeling before Him in church, etc. That is being reverent. I think reverence also implies submitting ourselves to God the best we can. Thank you for the fellowship Peace of Christ be with us all
  • Gladys Thomas
    Obeying God shows our Love And Respect for Him.
  • Sylvia
    To fear GOD is to Repect HIM. GOD doesn't want us to be afraid of him. GOD sent his only begotten son to save us from our sins. GOD is LOVE.
  • Wayne
    Fahim, another word for fear is reverence God. Realize how great and Godly He is. And worship Him.
