This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

The Scriptures —Study 7 — Romans 4:1-15
Study 7 From The Book of Romans Is: 4:1-15
Paul has made three statements which were
directly opposite to the Jewish interpretation of Scripture. The first was in , that by the work of the law
shall no flesh be justified; the second in , that God would justify the Gentiles through faith
without circumcision; and the third in 3:19 and 28, that salvation is given
independently of the law. Paul proceeds,
therefore, in chapter 4 to show that Scripture supports these propositions. He
bases his argument mainly on Gn. 15.
1.Abraham, and David also, were
men pre-eminently in the favor of God (cf. e.g., Is. 41: 8; Acts ). On what basis, then,
according to Scripture, was righteousness reckoned to them? See verses 1- 8
2.At what time in Abraham’s life
was his faith reckoned to him as righteousness? How does this vitally affect
the question at issue regarding the admission of Gentiles? See verse 9-12.
