I hope you all are well and enjoying your week so far. This past Sunday, we discussed how important it is to have God as our faith’s object. There is no shortage of ideologies or “ism” to believe, but only one object of our faith counts us as righteous. As we have been following Abram the last few weeks, we have seen his faith tested, but in Genesis 15:6, his faith is counted as righteous. This is a moment that he is fully convinced (as Romans 4:21 says) that God will do what he says. Moses recounts for us that “Abram believed the Lord,” emphasis on Lord! Abram believes in the Lord and trusts that He will do what he says. This fully convinced trust in God and his promises carry over in the New Testament as a shining example. Paul tells us, “But the words “it was counted to him” were not written for his sake alone, but for ours also. It will be counted to us who believe in him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification” (Romans 4:23-25). You see, what you believe and the object of your faith is crucial. Our faith rests solely upon the person and work of God the Son, and like Abram, through faith alone in Christ alone, we are counted righteous.
