Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer.
Then he believed in the Lord; and He reckoned it to him as righteousness.
For what does the Scripture say? “
Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”
Why? Because they did not pursue it
by faith, but as though it were by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone,
and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “
And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness,” and he was called the friend of God.
just as David also speaks of the blessing on the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:
2 Corinthians 5:19
God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
