“Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:9 By his blood - By his bloodshedding. We shall be saved from wrath through him - That is, from all the effects of the wrath of God. But is there then wrath in God? Is not wrath a human passion? And how can this human passion be in God? We may answer this by another question: Is not love a human passion? And how can this human passion be in God? But to answer directly: wrath in man, and so love in man, is a human passion. But wrath in God is not a human passion; nor is love, as it is in God. Therefore the inspired writers ascribe both the one and the other to God only in an analogical sense.
Ro 5:9 Much more then. The argument is: If while "we were yet sinners" (Ro 5:8), God loved us so well that Christ died for us, much more now shall we, being now justified, freed from sin, by his blood, be saved from the displeasure of God. By his blood. By dying for us. The keynote is "Christ died for us".
