being buried with him in the baptism, in which also ye rose with him through the faith of the working of God, who did raise him out of the dead. ~ Col 2:12 [YLT]
The faith of the operation of God was of works. Christ, the faith of God, carried out the salvation of mankind (better put, worked out the salvation of mankind on the cross). This was the operation of the faith of God – from the heaven to earth, from earth to cross, from cross to tomb, and from tomb to the Father’s right hand. God believed so much in the salvation of mankind through Jesus and He knew very well that all of mankind was included in this operation at the cross
(in this solution/calculation/work).It’s not mere impulse, it was a work done. God is at rest, and because of this, you deserve some rest also. God’s faith was with works, you and I partook in it.
You are forever embraced by God.
