Romans 4:13-25

Abram’s name meant “high father”; AbraHAm added idea of “multitude”; God changed Abraham’s name to show His intended promise.

God Frames Relationships With Covenant Concepts

God Values Relationship Over Rules
(Rom. 4:13-15)

  • v13 Abraham didn’t follow the Law (before Moses)
  • v14 “doing Law” not equal to relationship with LawGiver
  • v15 wrath comes when Law is broken
  • (can’t trespass when there’s no boundary line)

God Gives Grace Instead of Rewards
(Rom. 4:16-25)

  • v16-17 Promise comes by faith from God (available to all), not earned by works
  • v18-21 God knows how He’ll keep His promise ~ even when we don’t
  • v22-24 trusting God is credited as a righteous thing

UNDERLINE and UNDERSTAND Rom. 4:25~By His death, we are redeemed; By His life we are renewed
