Romans: Chapter 5

(Rom 5:1 KJV)  Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

 

(Rom 5:2 KJV)  By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

 

(Rom 5:3 KJV)  And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

 

(Rom 5:4 KJV)  And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

 

(Rom 5:5 KJV)  And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

 

(Rom 5:6 KJV)  For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

 

(Rom 5:7 KJV)  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

 

(Rom 5:8 KJV)  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

 

(Rom 5:9 KJV)  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

 

(Rom 5:10 KJV)  For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

 

(Rom 5:11 KJV)  And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

 

(Rom 5:12 KJV)  Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

 

(Rom 5:13 KJV)  (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

 

(Rom 5:14 KJV)  Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

 

(Rom 5:15 KJV)  But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

 

(Rom 5:16 KJV)  And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.

 

(Rom 5:17 KJV)  For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

 

(Rom 5:18 KJV)  Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

 

(Rom 5:19 KJV)  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

 

(Rom 5:20 KJV)  Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:

 

(Rom 5:21 KJV)  That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

(Rom 5:18 KJV) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

All mankind was condemned because of Adam. Every person born of a woman is born with a sinful nature inherited from Adam. Jesus was and is sinless and He is righteousness. He is our righteousness. Because we are in Him, we no longer live, but Christ lives in us. He in us, lives His life through us for we do not have our own life apart from His. He is our righteousness. Because we stand before God righteous in Christ, we are blameless and perfect in God’s eyes with the person of Eternal life living His life in us.

(Rom 5:17 KJV) For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

Death came by one – Adam. Righteousness is not earned or obtained through works as it was under the Law. Under the Law, righteousness was a “thing”, in grace Righteousness is the Person of Christ. God does not give us a “thing” called righteousness but His Son Christ Jesus who IS our righteousness!

Romans 5:12-19 “one man”. God historically has dealt with the “one man” at a time. “One man” is mentioned 12 times in this chapter:

(Rom 5:12 KJV) Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

(Rom 5:15 KJV) But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

(Rom 5:16 KJV) And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.

(Rom 5:17 KJV) For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

(Rom 5:18 KJV) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

(Rom 5:19 KJV) For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

We either are dead in Adam, or alive in Christ.

“free GIFT” & “GIFT by grace”. A gift is not earned or worked for. It is initiated by the giver and not the receiver. Just as everyone under Adam are sinners, so everyone in Christ are made alive.

Christ has fulfilled the Law: We are not under the Law and because of this we are free from sin.

(Rom 5:10 KJV) For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

“we shall be saved by HIS LIFE”. This is an incredible verse as it tells us that the life of Christ in us, saves us. Savation is not something, it is SOMEONE. It is the life of Another living His Life in and through us. 1Jn 5:11-12 KJV And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. (12) He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
