Wesley's Notes for Romans 5:11


5:11 And not only so, but we also glory - The whole sentence, from the third to the eleventh verse, may be taken together thus: We not only rejoice in hope of the glory of God, but also in the midst of tribulations we glory in God himself through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the reconciliation.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 5:11


Ro 5:11 We also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ. The ground of rejoicing is the reconciliation with God which has been effected through Jesus Christ. By whom we have now received the atonement. "Atonement", in the Common Version, is rendered, as it should be, in the Revised Version, "reconciliation". The same Greek word, "katallage", is found also in Ro 5:10. The thought is the same as that when "peace with God" is spoken of in Ro 5:1. The steps of the divine plan, as shown in these verses, are (1) The death of Christ for us. (2) The satisfaction thus made to the demands of justice. (3) The propitiation, or God's acceptance of Christ's sacrifice for us. (4) Reconciliation. Our acceptance of Christ. "We love God because he first loved us" (1Jo 4:19). (5) Forgiveness of sin, or justification. Our sins are blotted out. (6) Our redemption from the grave. (7) Our glorification in heaven.

    What was the sin of Adam which Paul references that has doomed many to condemnation? He believed his God given wife, Eve, who was seduced by Satan. This paradigm is not changed by Jesus! 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.
