Last week, we looked at the example of Abraham and how his righteousness came from faith and not from works. However, Paul’s focus is not on Abraham’s faith in general but on a specific aspect of his faith. Romans 4:16–24 points out that it was Abraham’s faith in God’s ability to bring about a son that was credited to him as righteousness. The Lord Jesus Christ is the ultimate fulfillment of that promise. He is the greater Son. This week, we will see how faith in Him leads to righteousness.
