Romans 4 (Simply Faith)

God’s plan has always been applied to those who believe and trust God, not to those who follow a religious code such as the law. Abraham believed God and was counted as righteous. He did not earn his place with God; he simply did as God said out of his trust in Him.

It is faith leading to forgiveness not works that brings us salvation. Faith is demonstrated in Abraham by how he lived—he went where God told him to, and he did what God asked—however this was merely the demonstration of his faith. His faith and not the actions that the faith produced was what saved him. That same faith is what saves everyone who puts their trust in God today. Not Religion. Faith.
