Peace with God

When the 101 Bible Study met on November 20 we studied the first half of Romans 5. I ran across this from John Murray:

The death of Christ does not constrain or elicit the love of God but the love of God constrained the death of Christ as the only adequate provi­sion of this love.” (John Mur­ray).

It sets the background for that wonderful comparison/contrast that we find in the last half of Romans 5, as Paul talks about the first man, Adam, and the second man, the Lord Jesus Christ.
