Romans 4:18-25

Jul 06, 2021 By: David Henneke Series: Romans Scripture: Romans 4

Throughout Chapter 4, Paul has given several reasons why our Justification is by faith & faith alone.  He wraps up his illustration about Abraham by stating that Abraham was justified because of his FAITH in God, not because of anything else. The heart of this entire passage, in fact of the whole chapter, is that in response to Abraham’s faith, God graciously credited it to him as righteousness. On his own, Abraham (like us) was totally unable to meet God’s standard of perfect righteousness, but the good news of salvation, or “the gospel of God” as Paul says in 1:1, is that God will take the faith (that He Himself has enabled a person to possess)  and He will count that faith as divine righteousness.
