And Abram believed the LORD, and the LORD declared him righteous because of his faith.
(Genesis 15:6 (NLT))
What does it take to be considered righteous in the eyes of God?
Have you ever pondered that question?
Perhaps the answer is so simple that we all have overlooked it because of its simplicity.
Abram was an old man of 75 when he heard God tell him to leave his family and his country and go to a land that God would show him. Abram believed God in this request. He also believed God when He told Abram that He would make him a father of many nations even when he had no children. Abram also believed God when He said that He would give him the land in which he roamed.
I don’t know about you, but I am starting to see a trend in the life of Abram. He simply believed God and fully relied upon God’s Word as truth. Abram exhibited great faith. Because of this, God declared that Abram was righteous.
Would God declare you to be righteous?
