Romans 4:6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,

 4:7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

 4:8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

 This imputed righteousness spoken of by David is found in Psalm 32:2. Imputation is righteousness counted or reckoned unto us through faith.

 Abraham believed God in Genesis 15:6 and it was counted unto him for righteousness (Romans 4:3).

Genesis 17:10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.

 17:11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.

 Circumcision was a token, a visible representation of faith.

Romans 4:11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

 Abraham is the father of all the uncircumcised that believe God.

 4:12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.

 Abraham is also the father of the circumcised.

John 8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

 The Jews claimed Abraham as their father solely on the basis of being children of descent and missed that they could only claim Abraham as their father by faith.

Romans 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

 Abraham was promised by covenant to be a father of many nations in Genesis 17:4 and heir of the world (Romans 4:13) along with his seed (Genesis 17:7). God promised Abraham and his seed the land (Genesis 17:8). This promise was not through the law, but the promise was through the righteousness of faith (Romans 4:13). It is by grace through faith that the promise is made sure to all the seed of Abraham (Romans 4:16). Abraham believed God when told he would be made a father of many nations (Romans 4:17) and believed that his seed would be in number as the stars in heaven (Genesis 15:5 Romans 4:18).

 Abraham was a father of many nations. From Abraham would come nations and kings (Genesis 17:6).

 Abraham would become a mighty nation and all the nations would be blessed in him (Genesis 18:18). His seed would become as the stars in heaven and in his seed all the nations would be blessed (Genesis 26:4). In the Davidic kingdom on earth Israel will one day be a blessing to the Gentiles (Jeremiah 23:5. The Lord Jesus Christ will sit on the throne of David and the law will go out of Zion and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem (Isaiah 2:2-3). Israel will teach the Gentile nations of God and the Gentiles will come to God through Israel (Isaiah 60:3).

 From Abraham would come the seed, the Lord Jesus Christ to redeem both Jew and Gentile by his blood (Genesis 3:15 Galatians 3:16). In Christ all the nations are blessed. Abraham is father to us all who walk after the faith of Abraham (Galatians 3:7).

 Israel was given the promise to inherit the earth (Psalm 37:22) not the church, the body of Christ. We are blessed and made heirs through the promise given to Abraham (Galatians 3:29) but we are made joint heirs with Christ in heavenly places (Romans 8:17 Ephesians 3:6 Ephesians 1:3).

 4:19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb:

 4:20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

 4:21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

 Abraham was fully persuaded that God could give him a child and multiply his seed. Faith is believing God and being fully persuaded that what God says is true; God is able and will perform his Word.

 4:22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.

 Faith is counted for righteousness.

 4:23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;

 4:24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;

 4:25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

 The righteousness of God will be imputed to us as well if we believe God and believe that Jesus our Lord was delivered for our offences, he died for our sins and rose for our justification. Jesus who knew no sin was made to be our sin so we could be given his righteousness.

2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Hang in there

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
