BIBLE PASSAGE Genesis 15:5–6
STORY: " LET´S MAKE A DEAL"
“[Abraham] believed the Lord, and he counted it to him as righteousness.
” What! Sinners like Abraham could be counted righteous? People under the curse that Adam
and the snake unleashed could be made right with God? (This is what righteous means.)
How could this be? The Bible is telling us that it is on the basis of belief.
When Abraham believed God’s promise, he was counted as righteous.
He wasn’t counted righteous because he was such a good person.
He wasn’t counted righteous because he was so religious.
He was counted righteous because he believed God. To put it differently, he was saved by faith.
We are sinners, too.
We need to be made right with God, too.
And like Abraham, the only way we can be perfectly holy in God’s sight is to believe his promises,
to receive his gift of salvation by faith
