Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Romans 5:1


5:1 Being justified by faith - This is the sum of the preceding chapters. We have peace with God - Being enemies to God no longer, #Rom 5:10|; neither fearing his wrath, #Rom 5:9|. We have peace, hope, love, and power over sin, the sum of the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth chapters. These are the fruits of justifying faith: where these are not, that faith is not.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 5:1


Ro 5:1 Reconciliation Through Christ SUMMARY OF ROMANS 5: Justification by Faith. Peace, Hope, and Joy. Christ Died for the Ungodly. His Surpassing Love. Death Through Adam's Sin. Life Through Christ's Righteousness. Law and Grace. Therefore being justified by faith. Paul has just shown that men are counted righteous before God, not through obedience to the law, but through faith in Christ. Not law, but faith justifies. The faith that justifies is (1) a faith in Christ; (2) a faith of the heart (Ro 10:9) which brings the whole life into obedience (Ro 1:5). Peace with God. While sinners, we are rebels against God. When our rebellion ceases and we are forgiven we are at peace. This blessed peace with God, which brings peace to the soul, is through Jesus Christ.

It obviously still exists today, this world being overwhelmed by sinful inhabitants. But the good news is that God had strengthened his argument by sending his beloved Son in his stead to plead with us of God

    How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence. Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded.

    Through Faith In Jesus Christ Refers To One Accepting Jesus As Lord And Saviour Of Ones Life. Fully Trusting Him. As Saviour Acknowledging What He Did On The Cross And As Lord, The Ruler And One Who Has Authority Over Ones Life. Amen.

    I believe we are covered by the blood of JESUS CHRIST AND HIS GRACE IS MORE THAN WE DESERVE!
    Thank God for the holy spirit and how I trust the path that God has me on.

    Very powerful scripture, displaying the mind of an infinite God, who before the fall of Man already had himself in mind to redeem Man back to Himself whom He created in His image and like likeness, yet without sin, He became sin for us all by His Grace towards us. The innocent before the fall
