The book of Romans is a lot to take in. Within Romans, fundamentals of the faith are articulated to a degree that most of us would not consider without the book in hand. Yet, God provided. If we look to Romans 4:3 we see that "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness." You may not have caught it on your first read, but it was only necessary that Abraham believe. The righteousness God credited him allowed Abraham to obey God. Abraham didn't obey and have righteousness credited to him, he believed and had righteousness credited to him. There's a world of difference.
