We read in Genesis 15:6 that “Abram believed the Lord, and He credited it to him as righteousness.” How can sinners by nature have any relationship with a holy God? Apart from the person of Christ and His redemptive work on our behalf, ours is indeed a hopeless case. Alistair Begg explains the doctrine of justification and the necessity of faith as the channel through which we receive God’s grace in salvation.
1After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: “Fear not, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great.”
