Lesson Review – Romans 4 – Abraham: Father to All by Faith


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Romans 4 – Abraham: Father to All by Faith

This is lesson 59 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 137 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 59 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Abraham was counted righteous by faith. In the same way, we are counted righteous not by our good works or deeds, but by faith in Jesus’ perfect life and death in our place, for our sins.

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

In his letter to the church in Rome, Paul used Abraham, the patriarch of the Jewish faith, to demonstrate that our standing of righteousness before God has always been by faith and not by works.

Questions for Discussion

What is faith?

Faith is trusting that something will happen that hasn’t yet happened. Faith is also trusting in someone’s word about something that we didn’t see personally.

What did Abraham have to trust God for?

God promised Abraham he would give him a son in his old age and that through this son all the nations of the earth would be blessed.

Why is Abraham a good example to us?

Abraham believed God.

What do we need to believe about God?

We need to believe that God is real, that God sent his only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins, and that Jesus was raised again on the third day.

Praying together – Take time to pray with your child, asking God to forgive you of your sin and thanking him for sending Jesus to be your righteousness.
