Faith Counted as Righteousness

September 29, 2019 Speaker: Pastor David Lovi Series: Genesis 12-25: The Life of Abraham

Topic: Abraham Passage: Genesis 15:1–15:1

Faith Counted as Righteousness-min

In our text today, Genesis 15:1-6, we will learn about how God’s timing is different than man’s timing. That’s such an important lesson for us to learn. Especially in our age when we want everything right now. They didn’t even have fast food back then. They had to kill the animal, prepare it, cook it. They learned how to wait for things. Even then it was difficult for Abram.

God had made this promise, and it still wasn’t fulfilled yet. Learning about God’s timing being different than ours and infinitely more perfect than ours is such a great lesson for us.

Our text this morning will teach us that. It will also show us the very means by which we are saved. The text in 15:6, Abram believed the Lord and He counted it to him as righteousness.

We are made righteous by faith just as God’s servant Abram.
