God’s One Sided Covenant

God’s covenant with Abraham was one sided.  That means that it did not depend on Abraham performing anything.  The performance of the covenant was on God.

Abraham is the Father of faith.  He believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness.  That means that righteousness was credited to his account.  Now, when someone gets saved, they become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

Jesus died on the Cross for the forgiveness of sins.  He rose from the grave overcoming death.  He has made a way to eternal life.  The way has been made.  It does not depend on anyone or anything except was had already been done. 

Our part is to believe in and receive the grace of God.
