Gen 15:6  And he [Abraham] believed the LORD, and he [the LORD] counted it to him as righteousness.
This is the first mention of ‘belief’ or ‘faith’ in the Bible. It was not faith for healing or prosperity; but is was faith for righteousness. Abraham believed the LORD and the LORD made him righteous. Man has always been made righteous by faith alone. Man is not made righteous by good works. Man is not made righteous by the works of the law. Man is made righteous by faith alone.
Abraham becomes a good example of all who are saved by faith in Christ Jesus. He is a great model of justification by faith alone. Paul said that “one is justified by faith apart from works of the law” Rom. 3:28. We are saved to do good works, but we are not saved by good works. Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, and to the glory of God alone.
FAITH FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS. From Paulos Moloi. Stay blessed.
