Wesley's Notes for Romans 4:24


4:24 But on ours also - To establish us in seeking justification by faith, and not by works; and to afford a full answer to those who say that, to be justified by works means only, by Judaism; to be justified by faith means, by embracing Christianity, that is, the system of doctrines so called. Sure it is that Abraham could not in this sense be justified either by faith or by works; and equally sure that David (taking the words thus) was justified by works, and not by faith. Who raised up Jesus from the dead - As he did in a manner both Abraham and Sarah. If we believe on him who raised up Jesus - God the Father therefore is the proper object of justifying faith. It is observable, that St. Paul here, in speaking both of our faith and of the faith of Abraham, puts a part for the whole. And he mentions that part, with regard to Abraham, which would naturally affect the Jews most.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 4:24


Ro 4:24 For us also. If we believe our faith shall save us. On him that raised Jesus. The same God who quickened Abraham's body, as good as dead, "raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead".

Discussion for Romans 4

  • Michael Hessic Apparicio
    Abraham promise from God is the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Not his seed but a example what to come in history the fulling the gospel
  • Elzie
    God says works without faith is dead and faith without works is dead. abraham had both and if we had just a quarter of his faith and works we would be having conversations with him on a regular basis with all the answers we need.
  • Zenaida
    Abraham pleased God because of his faith not of his works , so he could not boast. This is also how it should be with us,that our faith alone pleases God, not our works.
  • Denise Lewis
    If God said it then it will come to Pass.In Jesus name Amen!!!
  • Sheila Robinson
    Romans 4: Shares with us how Abraham believed by faith in God
  • Chalitea
    Yes, you can have little faith and little growth, and it will move all mountains and cast all fears aside....When speaking what you believe into existence your life is a major difference.
