Credited as Righteousness—Romans 4:4-5

Credited as Righteousness—Romans 4:4-5

"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" (Romans 4:4-5)

Anyone who works at job knows that the paycheck that comes at the end of the week isn’t a gift. It is the exchange given from the blood, sweat, and tears that come from being employed. We give our time, effort, skill, and passion to our employers, and in return they give us money.


As Paul points out, God justifies the wicked and in reality, we all fall into that category.
 

This is a good system in the workforce, but a bad deal when it comes to an arrangement with God. As Paul notes later on in the letter, the only wage we’d earn on our own merit is death (Rom. 6:23).

That’s right, credited with Jesus’ perfect and sinless record.

Wow! To have the faith of Abraham. He simply believed God. This is what the Scriptures recorded, but I imagine that this was a daily battle within his heart.


These promises had absolutely no requirements on Abraham’s part. He was simply to sit back and enjoy these blessings.
 

When God started making promises to Abraham, he was a wanderer without a home, and without an heir. Then God visited him and started making outlandish declarations.
