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

  • Mack
    Paul asserts that Abraham believed God and it was accounted as Faith. But Abraham was visited by Angels sent by God, clearly supernatural beings. Paul was visited by Jesus himself, supposedly. We are asked to believe based on the account of those who lived thousands of years ago. I will have faith and also carefully abide by the law. Acknowledgement of the law of God is equal to faith.

    Landon, water baptism does not save anyone. 1 Peter answers your statement. It's an answer of a good conscience toward God.
  • Irene123
    Linda Wms. - You are right on; it can be taken further though - Jas. ch. 2; "But wilt thou know, O man, that faith without works is dead. After faith brings us to Acts 2:38 - Then the GOOD works begin, in our witnessing. Any 'works' before Acts 2:38 are dead because we haven't His spirit of truth in us. It is the spirit that quickens, that 'pricks' the heart of sin. Eph. 2:10; Heb. 10:24; Tit.3:14
  • Linda williams
    Romans was written to show works are dead in the pursuit of rightousness, but it is faith in God that brings us in a right standing with Him by His grace.
  • Irene123
    AMEN, Landon!!! Go get 'em, Christian, and take Acts 2:38 with you .............
  • Bruce
    Landon:To be saved you must be "Called":John6:44, seek mercy:Luke 18:13, You will be Baptized with the Holy Ghost and Fire.( You will know!) 2Corinthians 5:17 impossible not to know! Many believe they are saved. Many will say to me in that day, Lord,Lord--- I never knew you:depart from me,ye that work iniquity.Matthew7:22-23( eternity is for--) Revelations 20:15,Matthew7:13 many there be that go-
