God Will Do It

Romans 4:3 (NLT): For the Scriptures tell us, ‘Abraham believed God,’ and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.” Romans 4:9 (NLT): “Now is this blessing only for the Jews, or is it also for uncircumcised Gentiles?” Romans 4:20-25 (NLT): “Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. And because of Abraham’s faith, God counted him as righteous. And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn’t just for Abraham’s benefit. It was recorded for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God.” 

Righteousness Comes By Believing 

Righteousness Is For All Who Can Believe

         Believing Is An Unshakable Trust In God’s Word = FAITH

God Counts Us Righteous Because of Our Faith

The Benefits of Righteousness Are Inestimable—But Here Are 10 Benefits:

Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.”
