2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
-It takes an amazing kind of faith to believe in a God who is, quite literally, beyond belief and too good to be true. You may wonder how humans are able to generate such faith; the answer is- we can’t. No, it’s actually God Himself who puts the faith in us to begin with. In case you’re keeping score, that means that the Lord not only provided us with the mercy of not just putting us all straight into Hell; and not only did He provide us with His own Son as an atonement for our sins; but He also gives us the faith to believe that it is all possible. Say what you will about God, but never let it be said that He is not fully invested in the salvation of our souls.
