Wesley's Notes for Romans 4:7


4:7 Happy are they whose sins are covered - With the veil of divine mercy. If there be indeed such a thing as happiness on earth, it is the portion of that man whose iniquities are forgiven, and who enjoys the manifestation of that pardon. Well may he endure all the afflictions of life with cheerfulness, and look upon death with comfort. O let us not contend against it, but earnestly pray that this happiness may be ours! #Psalm 32:1|,2.

    "Now to him that works is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that works not, but believes on him that justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." The Lord has told us we will be rewarded according to our works as showing what kind we are by them. But the redemption of our souls can only be by the blood of Jesus, and our salvation by faith and His grace.
