Genesis 15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
Abraham was never righteous in himself. He was counted righteous. That is what God does for us. We can never be righteous on our own. We never measure up. We never, ever, could do enough to be righteous. You might as well give up on that part.
Then come to Jesus just as you are. He will count you righteous if you will just believe Him. Believe that you can’t and He can. Believe that He died on a cross and paid your sin debt. Believe that He is God in human flesh come to love you and save you and you will be counted righteous.
This might sound bad to your human pride. Maybe you want to be good in yourself. Maybe you like to feel good about yourself but that will never be enough. Only Jesus saves. Only He can make you righteous. He will count you righteous because of His work.
He will make His Word a reality in your life. Trust Him today!
