Romans 4:1-8 was the topic of the sermon last sunday:
Ro 4:3 – [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Greek]For what does the Scripture say? “ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS CREDITED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS.”Ro 4:4 – Now to the one who works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due.Ro 4:5 -But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness,Ro 4:9 – Is this blessing then on the circumcised, or on the uncircumcised also? For we say, “FAITH WAS CREDITED TO ABRAHAM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS.”Ro 4:10 -How then was it credited? While he was circumcised, or uncircumcised? Not while circumcised, but while uncircumcised;
Ro 4:11 – and he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while uncircumcised, so that he might be the father of all who believe without being circumcised, that righteousness might be credited to them,
- Ro 4:22 – Now not for his sake only was it written that it was credited to him,
- Ro 4:24 – but for our sake also, to whom it will be credited, as those who believe in Him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead,

Notes from sunday;
He used banking terms, our sins transfer to Jesus’ account and the imputing of righteousness is transferred from Jesus to us.
