Abraham believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.
Genesis 15:6 refers to Abram (later known as Abraham) and highlights the significance of faith in God. And he believed in the LORD: When Abram put his trust in God, specifically in God’s promise to him (descendants leading to the Messiah), God credited (accounted) this verse emphasizes the idea that faith and trust in God's promises are foundational to a righteous relationship with Him. This concept of faith as a key component of righteousness is also echoed in the New Testament, particularly in the writings of the Apostle Paul.
There are essentially two types of righteousness: righteousness we accomplish by our own efforts, and righteousness accounted to us by the work of God when we believe.
Since none of us can be good enough to accomplish perfect righteousness, we must have God’s righteousness accounted to us by doing just what Abram did: "he believed in the LORD."
Father, In all things, help me to have faith in You. In Jesus name. Amen.
