Romans 4:3

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 3 For what does the scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness."[Abraham did not just believe that there was one most high God, he believed the words that God spoke to him enough to obey Him; that is believing in God, at least as defined in this book. A belief that Jesus is the Son of God is a belief in history, or Bible-faith. Similarly then, to believe in Jesus, as Paul has defined Abraham's belief, is to believe the words we hear Jesus speak to us; that is also faith as the Bible defines it in Romans, hearing the word of God in your heart so that you may obey it, Rom10:8,17, and believing. So Paul says that belief and faith mean hearing the Word of God speak to you from your heart and believing God or believing Jesus. You might be saying to yourself: "well if God told me to do something like he did Abraham, of course I would do it." From the Word of the Lord within: "Abraham willingly exposed himself to God's commands. " So too we must wait on God, watch, and silently listen for His commands to us, and then we must believe His words and obey them, just like Abraham did. From the Word of the Lord within: "Wait, expose yourself to His commands, and hear. Only the faith-that-frees imparts righteousness."]
