A man who places his trust in the completed work of Christ is declared righteous by the Lord. Like Abraham, his faith is credited to him with the status of righteousness. From Psalm 112, we can put together a list of blessings that goes with every righteous man.
“I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.” (1 Corinthians 3:6-7) The Apostle Paul understood the process of conversion.
