Wesley's Notes for Romans 5:8


5:8 But God recommendeth - A most elegant expression. Those are wont to be recommended to us, who were before either unknown to, or alienated from, us. While we were sinners - So far from being good, that we were not even just.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 5:8


Ro 5:8 But God commendeth his love. His love is not like human love. Christ died, not for friends, but for enemies. It was "while we were yet sinners" that he died for us.

Discussion for Romans 5:8

  • Raymond for verse 8
    I think it is amazing we all want to be love, we should not be selfish with our love. We should consider others we do not have to like the way they treat us be a Christian love them any way. Just think about the way we sin and break God 's law He still love and give changes after changes .
  • This verse always cause me to: - Deeply appreciate God for loving me so much even when I had no idea of Him and of such love. - Wonder at such great unquantifiable sacrifice God made to redeem me. God did not wait for me to be born before doing it. He loved me before I was formed in my mother 's womb. -fear and reverence Him. - always remember that I am unworthy of God 's love for this, I should show unconditional love to others
  • Fred garcia apostalic life for verse 8
    What would we do without mercy all have sinned and come short of the glory of God acts 2 38 the repentance message
  • Glenda Ball for verse 8
    Just as Jesus commended his Spirit to God on Calvary, God commended His Love to us. He gave it completely, without holding back anything. A perfect, beautiful, lavish giving of the best He had to give....
  • Nicholus ariedi for verse 8
    Unconditional love the true charater of our Christ Jesus so those who bear his name ought to arm ourselves with the same character towards those we think and see as sinners to love them so we can win them for Christ because christ came us then to them through us
  • Martha Harden for verse 8
    I always try to make that verse be as "personal" to me as I can. While "I" was yet a sinner, Christ died for me. By doing so (making it personal), It makes me try harder to pattern my life as someone that is worthy of such "unconditional love". Sometimes when I'm feeling "blue", all I have to do is remember that God loves ME! ME! What an awesome feeling--
