What are we really trusting in? That is the issue in justification. We move on to chapter four of Romans where Paul brings in the Old Testament as witness to the truth of justification by grace through faith alone. The message of salvation is the same in the Old Testament and in the New. Abraham is an example of faith to us as he believed God’s promise and lived by faith.
The text is Romans 4:1-12.
We will consider these points:
1, The justification of Abraham.
2. The teaching of David in the Psalms.
3. The meaning and purpose of circumcision.
4. The implications for us today.
