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.

Discussion for Romans 5

  • Emanuel Fernandes
    Trying of your faith worketh patience (fruit of the spirit) it also builds faith trials of your faith is precious but it must be tried with fire so the Lord can use you. Why? Without faith it's IMPOSSIBLE to please him
  • A disciple
    "For if by one man's offence death reigned by one much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ." There is evidently a great chasm fixed between the Scriptures of Truth and the Other Gospel that is so popularly believed in today. The Truth is that we WERE dead in sins and bound with chains of darkness, alienated in our minds by nature away from God, and all knowledge and spiritual understanding but now in Christ we ARE alive and righteous, clean through the word which He has spoken and made new creations made after the image of Him who loved us and gave Himself for us. No matter what men may say and contradict and argue the fact done is that we are now made holy and righteous through the grace of Jesus Christ, and have eternal life. Sin and death do not have dominion over us!
  • Elijah
    The question that is asked by the bible trivia, '3.  Paul says that tribulations give us what?
    I think that the answer to the question is wrong. It does not give all three. It is by enduring tribulations that we learn the value of dealing with trials patiently, and by doing thus, we gain experience. Through these experiences we see our reason for hope in God. Praise the Lord for His mercy.
  • Edna
    not only reconciled peace with God but saved by his life, thru his ressurtion, if there was no ressurtion we would be dead in our sins.So we have hope in Gods gift to us JESUS CHRIST
