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.

    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

    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
