TOPIC: THE STATUS OF LAW AND FAITH

TEXT: ROMANS 4:13-25


God's plan is for us to receive salvation by faith. Take a closer look at vs. 13-15, note the basis of Abraham's righteousness. If access to salvation was by law, many shall be disqualified (also see Gal. 2:16). The law showed us our need for salvation and our inability to save ourselves or measure up to God's standard.


Abraham's faith grew through the trying circumstances of life. Humanly impossible circumstances challenged Abraham's faith but his perseverance and trust in God prevailed. As Christians, we may encounter trying moments, but we need to hold on to our faith in God, like Abraham did.


Faith lives and spans through time because Jesus, in whom our faith is anchored lives and secures our faith unto the performance of His counsel (Jeremiah 1:12).


QUESTION

Do you believe that your faith in Christ can justify you?
