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.

    Romans 8 is the crown jewel of the Bible. It tells us all we need to know of this life. Even though there is a spiritual battle going on in the world, and in our lives, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. If God be for us, who can be against us. Remember the Holy Spirit is not an it, but He is the third Person of the Godhead.

    Amen, thank you Jesus! I have repented, with much remorse, for the many things I said and did when I was younger and foolish. I wish I could go back and fix it all, especially for one individual. Way back when we were in elementary school, I did apologize for what I did. as I was deeply sorry. She accepted it, but our friendship was over as her family did not want us to be friends anymore. I don't blame them, as it was all my fault. I was afraid of the ones who bullied her and instead of fighting them off, I joined in because I was so afraid of them they too, bullied me , but that is NO excuse. I wish I could go back and fight them, even if it meant getting myself beat up for it. I would have gladly taken a punch in the nose for her. For over fifty years I have been ashamed and full of guilt, and begged God's forgiveness. I just hope my former friend has a wonderful, blessed life, full of love and God's goodness, and is truly happy.

    So you are neither free to keep sinner because Jesus was the sin nearer. And you keep sinning throughout your lifetime. And you are neither free from dying because we all keep dying. And we are neither free from keeping the law because Jesus himself keep the Law ,that he came not to abolish but to fulfill from Genesis chapt.2:1,Exodus 20:where God himself wrote the 10 commandment Laws with his own finger, And Revelation 22:14, where keeping Gods Law is your ticket into Heaven. So we HAVE to keep the law of God and not the Mosaic law the kiiing of sheep etc. to appease for our sins,because the good shepherd died she'd blood himself instead of sheep dying anymore.Therfore all we have to do is pray kneeling ,bowing,laying prostrate on the ground ,or just calling on the name of the Ultimate Sheep-that. was sacrificed

    Romans 3 says there is nobody who is righteous or seeks after God. Jesus said none can come to him unless they are called by the Father. Satan has blinded the minds of all of the children of Adam. Romans 8:29-30 gives the solution to get people saved. Before the creation He predestinated people at random to be able to hear and understand the gospel when HE calls and we decide to reply to Him
