People's Bible Notes for Romans 5:10


Ro 5:10 For if . . . we were reconciled to God. As sinners, we are the enemies of God, rebels, under his divine displeasure. Through the gospel of the Crucified Redeemer, we obtain peace with God. We turn to him, and are reconciled to him, obtaining forgiveness through faith, God is not reconciled to us, but we to him. His love ever shines, and is shown in his gospel. He is ever ready to pardon, and when we cease our rebellion, and come to him, through Christ, for mercy, he receives us. We shall be saved by his life. He who gave his blood for our reconciliation, will not leave his work incomplete. He died, has risen and ascended on high, and he will not leave us in the grave, but we shall rise with him (1Co 15:22).

Discussion for Romans 5

    Romans Chapter 5 Is a very evident picture of our Lord Jesus Christ reuniting man (who sinned) with a Holy and Great God who brings Forgiveness to all who will but Repent of their sins and believe Jesus can and will forgive "ALL" our sins.

    It is true that through one man sin entered the world,but Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice and conquer death therefore through Christ Jesus we're free from sin, and the sting of death if we believe and trust in God on earth breathing heaven Air
  • 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.
