For Wednesday evening services, the Lord has lead me to do a Bible study for practical Bible verses in Romans. Please come back to these Bible lessons in order to review them and learn them. Whenever we have learned the meaning of Bible verses and think about them throughout each day, we will be in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). Not only that, but when we are in a situation in our daily lives and are tempted to sin, we can think back to what we have learned from the Bible and say to ourselves, "The Bible says to not do what I am tempted to say, think, do, and/or desire right now, so I am going to refuse to give in to this temptation." This is what Romans 12:2 means, and it says, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." This is also the pattern that Jesus used when the devil tempted Him to sin in Matthew 4:1-11.
My copy and paste feature doesn't keep the words that are supposed to be italicized, so instead of me doing it manually, refer to a Bible to see which words are italicized.
And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:
Abraham received salvation due to his faith. Being circumcised didn't result in Abraham receiving salvation; it was proof he had salvation and a right relationship with God, because he obeyed God's command.
Today, we gain evidence that our faith in Jesus resulted in us receiving salvation and becoming Christians if we follow Jesus' commands. In John 10:27-30 Jesus explains, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one." For an example of what this lifestyle looks like, see chapter 39 of the pdf file book featured at this website - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com (If you have prayed or made a decision to become a Christian, but you haven't been following Jesus, please follow this website - http://chriswaug5.wix,com/makingsure)
Notice that John 10:30 reveals that Jesus and God are one. They've always been as one, and Jesus was crucial in people receiving salvation in the Old Testament days as well. Old Testament saints believed that God would send the Messiah and provide the way for people to have their sins paid for and forgiven (Isaiah 53). As a result, they received salvation. In keeping with Abraham and his faith, Galatians 3:6-9 adds, "Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham."
