Romans Chapter 4

Justification By Faith, Romans Chapter 4:

Many have taught of the Old Testament (or Jewish) economy, where our behavior, good or bad, earned us a place with God or the place without Him.  Then, of the New Testament (or Christian) economy, where belief is what gives us a place with God.  Paul teaches that there has only been one economy from the beginning...God's economy.  Let's discover what that is:

1.  Based on what Paul wrote in verses 1-5, do you feel Abraham received God's promise and became the Patriarch of Judaism because of what he did or Who he believed?

2.  How do you feel the quote of David applies to this issue?

3.  Why is it important to understand Abraham was blessed by God before he was circumcised?

4.  Paul used the phrase, "God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were."  How does this apply to the modern you?

5.  What circumstances have you faced, where what you could see said one thing, but faith in God said another (like Abraham and God's promise of a child)?  Did it turn out according to what you saw or what God said?

6.  Why is verse 23-25 so important?  What does it mean to you?  Can just 5 words in the Old Testament mean so much?  Do you feel it was coincidence that the Old Testament says, "he believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness."?

7.  What does this say to those who reduce Christianity (or Judaism) to a set of rules to follow?
