I don't remember seeing this verse before, or maybe I should say it has never registered before today:
4 When people work, their wages are not a gift, but something they have earned. 5 But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners. 6 David also spoke of this when he described the happiness of those who are declared righteous without working for it:
7 “Oh, what joy for those
whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sins are put out of sight.
8 Yes, what joy for those
whose record the Lord has cleared of sin.”
That wonderful reminder that we can earn our salvation, it is through our faith in God who forgives sinners! So very, very good!
Lots of good stuff in this chapter about Abraham, our father, what jumped out at you?
