Bible Commentary for Romans 5:8

Wesley's Notes for Romans 5:8

5:8 But God recommendeth - A most elegant expression. Those are wont to be recommended to us, who were before either unknown to, or alienated from, us. While we were sinners - So far from being good, that we were not even just.

Ro 5:8 But God commendeth his love. His love is not like human love. Christ died, not for friends, but for enemies. It was "while we were yet sinners" that he died for us.

Discussion for Romans 5

  • Meg on Romans 5:8
    This verse always cause me to: - Deeply appreciate God for loving me so much even when I had no idea of Him and of such love. - Wonder at such great unquantifiable sacrifice God made to redeem me. God did not wait for me to be born before doing it. He loved me before I was formed in my mother 's womb. -fear and reverence Him. - always remember that I am unworthy of God 's love for this, I should show unconditional love to others

    What would we do without mercy all have sinned and come short of the glory of God acts 2 38 the repentance message
  • Glenda Ball on Romans 5:8
    Just as Jesus commended his Spirit to God on Calvary, God commended His Love to us. He gave it completely, without holding back anything. A perfect, beautiful, lavish giving of the best He had to give....
  • Nicholus ariedi on Romans 5:8
    Unconditional love the true charater of our Christ Jesus so those who bear his name ought to arm ourselves with the same character towards those we think and see as sinners to love them so we can win them for Christ because christ came us then to them through us
  • Martha Harden on Romans 5:8
    I always try to make that verse be as "personal" to me as I can. While "I" was yet a sinner, Christ died for me. By doing so (making it personal), It makes me try harder to pattern my life as someone that is worthy of such "unconditional love". Sometimes when I'm feeling "blue", all I have to do is remember that God loves ME! ME! What an awesome feeling--
  • Doris on Romans 5:8
    Thank you God for loving us. We give praise to your Holy Name.
  • Revival 2013 on Romans 5:8
    God has shown his love to all humanity ever since the creation of the world his love has been evident. From His invisible qualities becoming our gifts to see like the trees and the stars and all else He has created surely God has shown His love for thee. At the right time God sent His only Son into the world and took upon the sins of all humanity so that we could live eternally with Our Lord Jesus Christ in heaven. While we were powerless to redeem our sinful selves at birth Christ died for us and this is how He showed his great love for all, by becoming an atoning sacrifice for you and me.
  • Theresa on Romans 5:8
    It means to me that God loves us no matter what . He sent his son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth on him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
  • Plas Jaramillo on Romans 5:8
    I like Darby's rendering "commends His love to us." So, if we receive His love it is ours and all we do is act accodingly. Praise God! Hallelujah!!
  • Nelisiwe on Romans 5:8
    Itís amazing to think that God gave up his son for me and loves me unconditionally regardless of my short comings yet I fail to lay down my heart and love not just those who are close to me. I pray that he helps me and plant his humbleness in my heart for I know that if he lives in me all will be as he wants me as his child to carry his name.
