Romans 4:5 5 However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness. (NIV)

To be righteous is to be right.  Mankind is not righteous.  Mankind is wrong more than right.  God is always right.  Jesus is always right.  They are righteous.  Abraham believed and trusted God so he was considered righteous.  Not because he was actually righteous but it was right to believe and trust God.  It is not our works that God considers us righteous.  It is our belief and trust in God that credits us as righteous.  When we believe and trust God we are right to do so.  We must ask ourselves do we really believe and trust God?  To trust God means we will follow in obedience because we trust He knows what is right.  Let us choose to trust God in all things.  Let us be credited as righteous.
