People's Bible Notes for Romans 4:8


Ro 4:8 Blessed [is] the man, etc. This is another form of the thought of Ro 4:7. One whose sins have been forgiven will not find them imputed to him at judgment. We obtain this blessedness by a faith in Christ which leads us to accept the gospel.

    Not only was abraham the father of the circumcision but also of the uncircumcision in that he was a Heathen justified by faith, Thus the gentiles come under the new covenant by faith, The scripture forseeing that God wd justify the Heathen by FAITH Preached the gospel unto Abraham SAYING IN THEE SHALL ALL NATIONS BE BLESSED,Isaiah i have given thee as a covenant to the ppl and a light to gentiles.

    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.
  • Eric S
    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
  • Edna
    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.
