Romans 4:15-17

Matthew Henry says that The strength of faith appeared in its victory over fears. God honors faith; and great faith honors God. It was imputed to him for righteousness. Faith is a grace that of all others gives glory to God. Faith clearly is the instrument by which we receive the righteousness of God, the redemption which is by Christ; and that which is the instrument whereby we take or receive it, cannot be the thing itself, nor can it be the gift there by taken and received. Abrahams faith did not justify him by its own merit or value, but as giving him a part in Christ.
