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.

    God will only justify his children who repent and obey his commanments.send me more message that will build my faith.thank,s for your reply amen.
  • Isaac umelo for verse 30
    I notice that many Christians are hung up with being justified. They strive to seen as righteuos in the eyes of the world. This passage shows that there is still a gap between being rightous and being glorified. At the peak of Glory, we do not need to be proved right. We are then seated above principalities and powers where the devil can no more accuse us.
