Financial Credit Report

Most people know how important it is to have a good credit report with a decent score. Having a good credit report certainly does help when a consumer wants a bank loan and tries to purchase a house, a car or rent an apartment.

Lenders want to know how good your credit is. Therefore, they check your credit report. Companies believe they can get a good idea of who you are by seeing your financial records. Some employers won't hire you if you do not have a high credit score. That's ironic because you want a job so you can pay your bills to raise your credit score.

Your score report shows a list of your creditors, how much you owe them and if you pay your bills on time. You can get approved or denied for major purchases and services if your credit report is not satisfactory because you might be seen as a credit risk.

That's the way it is when it comes to your credit report based on your finances. What about your spiritual credit report?

Spiritual Credit Report

Everyone has a spiritual credit report that has nothing to do with their finances. A spiritual credit report has nothing to do with the amount of money you make, how you spend it, or how much you have in the bank.

Your spiritual report is based on your faith in God and your service in the Kingdom of God. Throughout the Bible, God talks about faith being credited to some people and the reason for that description.

Unlike a financial credit report, your spiritual credit report is based on faith. According to Hebrews 11:6, it is impossible to raise your spiritual credit score and please God without faith.

Read through the list and see how your spiritual credit report compares to those in the Bible. Steps are suggested for your spiritual credit score to be increased.

Faith is believing God and taking God at His word even though you have no physical proof.

A List of Spiritual Credit Reports

A list of spiritual credit reports is found in Hebrews 11. Some call it the Roll Call of Faith, but in keeping with this topic, we will look at it as the biblical spiritual credit reports.

The list is in order of people as they appear in Genesis, the Book of Beginnings to the end of the Old Testament and as they are listed in Hebrews 11, the faith chapter.

Abraham's Spiritual Credit Report

Abraham is mentioned briefly in the table above. Since he was the "Father of Many Nations," a bit more information should be said about him because he is our example of faith. Abraham's faith was credited to him as righteousness, according to Galatians 3:6. Therefore, our faith can be just as strong as his, and what was written on his spiritual credit report can also be written on ours.

The words "it was credited to him" were written to describe Abraham who trusted God to get out of his country not knowing where he was going. Abraham went and God showed him on the way where to go. The Bible says Abraham's faith was credited to him as righteousness. In other words, Abraham had a very good spiritual credit report with a very high score.

What was written about Abraham wasn't recorded for his sake alone, but for ours as well (Romans 4:23-24).

Your Spiritual Credit Report

God is not going to ask you to build an ark because Noah already did that. God is not going to ask you to deliver the Hebrews slaves out of Egypt because Moses already did that. However, there are some things that God still wants you to do that will raise your credit score. How are doing in the following areas?

  • Reading the Bible
  • Praying
  • Praise
  • Worshiping
  • Meditating
  • Journaling
  • Singing
  • Dancing
  • Loving Others
  • Giving
  • Evangelizing
  • Serving in the Kingdom of God

      Sitting here trying to pay my debts and raise my credit score. Then on bible gateway scripture of the day, that led me to read Matthew 6. Then i googled spiritual credit score and saw your article. Thank you for this perspective. I prayed God help me pay my debts and it's a tough road but getting through. I don't want to be slave to a lender, and I want to serve one master. God bless you and pray for me as I pay debt collectors, provide for my family, and keep the faith. I pray for you to reach many more women in this world. Thank you!
