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 is evident in scripture that there is nothing any of us could do in order to secure our own salvation; that was wholly a work of the Lord. Here the Bible reveals that we aren’t even responsible for generating our saving faith, the Lord Himself ignited that spark of belief. God’s great plan furnishes us with the love to send a Savior, the Blood to wash away our sins, the Grace to extend salvation to whosoever will, and even the Faith to believe it’s all possible. Let it never be said that the Lord is not thorough or that His love for us is incomplete. Let it also never be said that the Lord stops at simply igniting our faith; for it is also made evident in this very verse “that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6)
