1:6 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:
1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
1:21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
(See Scofield "Romans 3:24") .
1:26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
Reconciliation. The Greek word signifies "to change thoroughly from," and occurs, Romans 5:10 ; 11:15 ; 1 Corinthians 7:11 ; 2 Corinthians 5:18 2 Corinthians 5:19 2 Corinthians 5:20 . Reconciliation looks toward the effect of the death of christ upon man, as propitiation (See Scofield "Romans 3:25") , is the Godward aspect, and is that effect of the death of Christ upon the believing sinner which, through divine power, works in him a "thorough change" toward God from enmity and aversion to love and trust. It is never said that God is reconciled. God is propitiated, the sinner reconciled (cf) 2 Corinthians 5:18-21 .
1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
(See Scofield "Matthew 13:11") .
1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
mystery (See Scofield "Matthew 13:11") .
Christ (See Scofield "Ephesians 4:24") .
perfect (See Scofield "Matthew 5:48") .
