Bible Passage: Romans 4:1-25
If Grace is the bridge to everything then how do we cross the bridge?
It’s Always Been Grace Through Faith
Moses taught that righteousness came apart from the Law! (4:1-11a)
The testimony of Abraham wasn’t that Israel would ultimately be the people of God but rather the Church! (4:11b-22)
In the same way God considered Abraham righteous for trusting God to do what He said, you and I are counted righteous if we by faith surrender to God trusting that Christ’s death and resurrection accomplished what our works could not! (4:23-25)
Faith requires that we believe that what Christ did is all that needs to be done for me to deserve a relationship with God. Are you a believer who can’t enjoy knowing God because you keep trying to do things to deserve Him? Are you one who has never given your life to Christ because you feel like there is no way God could forgive you or because you’re scared you will fail in the future? The challenge is the same – trust God at His Word!
