Most people think that God will accept them just as long as they do the “best they can”. For many, they believe they can secure God’s approval by being good, by being respectable and honorable, by being an upright citizen, or by occasionally helping others who are less fortunate. The tragic reality is that this thinking is simply not true. In Chapter 3, Paul says that God declares people righteous [justification] on the principle of faith instead of works. In Romans 4:1-8, he Illustrates this Biblical Truth using Abraham and David as his example.
