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.

    Philippians 3:9 "And be found in him not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith."
  • Lucinda Palestrant
    Because of faith in him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; righteousness is imputed to the born again believer.
  • Godanga San Junior
    No human being can claim to be righteous at the sight of God because of their deeds. Only our faith can be imputed on us as righteousness by God. Abraham was justified because of his faith and not because of his deeds. Believe in God.

    When Jesus speak it shall be done there is no devil in hell can change what Jesus say if said it just believe and u will see it come to pass put your trust in God not man and remember His time is not the same as your time one day is like a thousand years with Jesus and know that his love is True toward U that while he die for U and me it was his love when u are u saved u have natural love
  • Arnold McCall for verse 3
    For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
  • Joshua Butamen for verse 17
    Romance 4:7 put us to the level of God and we operate as such...calling things which be not as though they are....this is God at work in man...
