Believing God-Listening

Updated on September 1, 2009

Righteousness

Genesis 15:6

Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.

I'm reading a book called Believing God by Bethe Moore. It's a awesome book.

I'm also keeping notes from scripture that she added in the book. Above is Genesis 15:6.

I got a message from the book, I believe God wants me to post this, so here I go.

In one part of the book she refers to our sin and to our works. I always have a certain fear when I sin and in this life we sin, we are flesh and we are human. But what caught my eye is what she wrote about this. God doesn't count our sins, he counts our works so that he can see which one of them will bring him glory. Our works don't save us no, but our works are counted and judged, and when He counts them they are added to us as righteousness. Believing in God is not the only thing we must believe, we must believe what He says. Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.

Romans 4:4-6

Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but as an obligation. However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness. David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:

Look at the verses above, when we work our wages are not credited to us as a gift but a obligation, but our works for God are credited to us as righteousness, God doesn't count our sin, he gets the glory for our works if they bring Him glory he will give us credit for it and it's wonderful because when we we're saved our sins are forgiven, present, past and future.

So as we go on walking this road of life, God gives us credit for our works, He does not count our sins, He does not sit up in heaven and count our wrongs. When He is glorified then He will credit it to us as Righteousness.
