Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Romans 5:9


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.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 5:9


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".

    Verse 8: God had so much love for mankind that even while we were sinners and we did nothing deserving of his love, he provided the ransom by sacrificing the life of his most precious Son, Jesus Christ.
  • Preston withrow
    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!
