Lessons From Abraham’s Good Example (Romans 4:13-18)

Phillip Stuckey, March 31, 2019
Part of the Men of the Old Testament series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

The Bible teaches us the value of studying the Old Testament (1 Cor. 10:6, 11; 2 Tim. 3:14-15). What can we learn from the life of Abraham, the friend of God and hero of faith (Heb. 11:8)? In our last lesson, we learned that Abraham wasn’t perfect, but had his failures just like you and me. In this lesson, we want to consider some of the times when his faith held fast so that we can be encouraged that we can do the same.

Romans 4:13–18 (Listen)

13 For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. 15 For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression.

16 That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, 17 as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist. 18 In hope he believed against hope, that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been told, “So shall your offspring be.”
