Summary: Believe in Jesus and be imputed with righteousness

May the peace of the Lord be with you.


Romans 4:6-12 King James Version (KJV)

6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,

7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.

10 How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.

11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.

Beloved, the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ, which God blessed Abraham with by faith when he was uncircumcised and then gave him the act of circumcision as a seal of this righteousness is available to all not just to us Christians.

Beloved God orchestrated it this way so that Christians though being special and unique would not form a closed group and keep all others out but would open their doors to all, teach them the faith and through the work of Precious Holy Spirit lead them to the faith to have faith in Jesus and worship Jesus so they also be counted as righteous.

Beloved, this righteousness is available to all, everybody, the prostitute, the alcoholic, the idol worshipper, the satanist, the cheat, the gossip, the slanderer etc etc.

The righteousness of God is available to anyone at all who believes in Jesus. Once all or any of the people mentioned above who Christians would describe as not walking in the ways of God gets faith in Jesus they become as righteous as any Christian or every other Christian is.

The difference between the saved and the unsaved is that the saved has taken advantage of the availability of the righteousness of God through Jesus and is enjoying it but the unsaved hasn't.

As David said, for the man who has faith in Jesus and is made righteous by God, his sins are forgiven and his iniquities are covered by God and God charges him with no sin.

This man is blessed and highly favored beloved, and all this is obtained free of charge without doing any work but just by having faith in Jesus.

Beloved this means, the righteous and the unrighteous all commit sin or make mistakes but for the righteous all his sins and errors are squashed away by God and God has chosen not see these sins or consider them and God would never ever disgrace them because of their sins but He will always cover and protect them and bless them in leaps and bounds.

For the unrighteous, your sins are counted against you and you shall pay for them. God will punish you for them because you will be judged according to your actions or works.

Beloved, sometimes we make the Christian faith look so someway for people who are not Christians and they have great struggle accepting the faith and walking in it.

Beloved the faith is for all, the righteousness is for all who believe so let's make it or explain it as simple and straightforward as it is to all for all the lost to be found in Jesus name.

Beloved Jesus came to this earth and explained the faith with examples and exhibition of power that all may understand and follow. Let us do as He did and encourage people to come to the faith as we preach Jesus to them for *ITS ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else.

Prayer: Daddy please teach me to teach all who come my way so they understand and follow the faith that they may also become your righteousness in Christ Jesus. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
