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.

    MARK 8:35 FOR WHOSOEVER WILL SAVE HIS LIFE SHALL LOSE IT BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL LOSE HIS FOR MY SAKE AND THE GOSPELS THE SAME SHALL SAVE IT---JOHN 15:3 NOW YOU ARE CLEAN THROUGH THE WORD WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU---JOHN 5:34 BUT I RECEIVE NOT TESTIMONY FROM MAN BUT THESE THINGS I SAY UNTO YOU THAT YOU MIGHT BE SAVED
  • A disciple
    "Now to him that works is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that works not, but believes on him that justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." The Lord has told us we will be rewarded according to our works as showing what kind we are by them. But the redemption of our souls can only be by the blood of Jesus, and our salvation by faith and His grace.

    Jesus simply states to the Pharisees that they are of their father the devil, who was the first murderer in that he caused Cain to slay Abel in the Garden of Eden. Jesus even states later that Abraham loved to see his day, then they said how could Abraham have seen you when you are only thirty years old, and Yeshua said "before Abraham was, I am". Then, the Pharisees picked up stones to stone him

    WE ALL STAND GUILTY BEFORE GOD. SO GOD GAVE ABRAHAM A PROMISE GGEN 12 3 AND THRU WITCH WOULD RECEIVE A WAY OF SALVATION. THE PROMISE CAME BEFORE THE LAW IT POINTS TO CHRIST WHICH REFERS TO THE PROMISE. NOT LIKE BULLS AND GOATS THAT COVER SIN BUT THRU CHRIST JESUS BLOOD WHAT TOOK SINS AWAY
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The importance of faith for justification is underlined in this chapter. Abraham's faith is counted for righteousness. We should seek the cleansing of our sins from the precious Blood of Christ and have undying faith in God to be "counted for righteousness" We should also note that what God has promised in our lives, he is able also to perform.
  • Ray321
    Romans 4:7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Abraham and David sins were forgiven and covered back in the old testament, but our sins are all washed away , that's how God sees us. God sees us Holy, even though we are not outwardly. 2 Corinthians 4:16 For which cause we faint not but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed.
