Abraham believed You, and You counted his faith in You to him as righteousness. You do the same for me today—a condition undeserving. I have not earned Your righteousness; You give it to me as a gift simply because I believe. You have covered my sins, and You do not count them against me. Your promises come through the righteousness of faith—all as an undeserving gift. O, the things I do every day that make me unworthy of this gift, yet You give it to me anyway. The Law brings wrath, but by faith You place me under grace, and so there are no transgressions and You no longer see my sins, but rather me covered in the justifying blood of Christ. Abraham believed that You were able to do as You promised, and so You did. His faith was not in vain, for You are forever faithful, the culmination of Your promise to him fulfilled in Christ Jesus my Lord. Therefore, I believe in Your promise that Jesus will come again. I know You will do this, and I eagerly wait for the Day. Christ died for my sins and You raised Him for my justification, and He is returning again to bring the saints home.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever.

Amen.
