Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:30


8:30 Them he - In due time. Called - By his gospel and his Spirit. And whom he called - When obedient to the heavenly calling, #Acts 26:19|. He also justified - Forgave and accepted. And whom he justified - Provided they continued in his goodness, #Rom 11:22|, he in the end glorified - St. Paul does not affirm, either here or in any other part of his writings. that precisely the same number of men are called, justified, and glorified. He does not deny that a believer may fall away and be cut off between his special calling and his glorification, #Rom 11:22|. Neither does he deny that many are called who never are justified. He only affirms that this is the method whereby God leads us step by step toward heaven. He glorified - He speaks as one looking back from the goal, upon the race of faith. Indeed grace, as it is glory begun, is both an earnest and a foretaste of eternal glory.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:30


Ro 8:30 Whom he did predestinate. He now shows how this is accomplished for those thus foreknown as the lovers of God. Then he also called. They are "called" by the preaching of the gospel, as in 2Th 2:14: "Whereunto he called you by our gospel". It is not stated that these alone are called. We know that many others are called. Them he also justified. The called, accepting the call, are justified. Their sins are blotted out. He also glorified. These are made heirs of eternal glory. As stated by Godet, the purpose of the whole passage may be expressed as follows: ``I see thou dost love God; art a believer; I therefore decree of thee that thou shalt become like my Son and be glorified with him.'' The steps by which this is accomplished are calling, justification, and final glorification.

Discussion for Romans 8

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Eternal truths- So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. If God be for us, who can be against us?

  • Ray321
    Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: JESUS NEVER SINNED. Glory be to God for his only begotten Son that died for our sins and rose from the dead three days.

    I am not full of praise for you but criticism for your sing a song and feel his blessing. Not real conversion but phoney Christians like Pense. Sick. God demands more if not everything. What you say, what you do, how you are, whst you feel, in shirt everything. Anybody can dummy up a blissful smile and say praise, praise, but not everyone can please God. He is real and does not fall for lies
