God's Plan for Righteousness

Romans 4:16.25
This is why righteousness must come through a system of grace, so the promise would be universally available to all the descendants of Abraham whether they believe directly or come about it as a result of the Law. God told Abraham, "I have made you a father of many nations." He did this through His creative power. Abraham put all his hope in this promise and even though he was about a hundred years old and Sarah and his bodies were worn out he kept believing, kept strong, kept trusting God believing in God's creative power. So God considered that righteous and not just for him but also for we who believe in Him who raised Jesus our lord from the dead; Jesus who was convicted and crucified for our sins and raised from the dead to justify us.
