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.

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".

    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.
