Text: Romans 4:1–8
Title: "The Gospel Illustrated"
Paul ends the third chapter of Romans with six questions. Those six questions test our understanding of the gospel. What Paul contends for through those six questions he now demonstrates in a real life. His choice for the illustration is someone whom every Jew would have to concede settles the issue as to how God justifies His people. Paul chooses Abraham.
This Lord's Day we will spend the morning and evening examining Paul's test case. We will see that Paul's gospel is the same good news that all the Old Testament saints trusted in as they looked forward to the coming of Messiah.
