Want to be better, do better, and please Creator God more as a born again believer?
Apply 2 Peter 1:1-11 to your daily living:
“To those who have received a faith of the same [b]kind as ours, [c]by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ: 2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; 3 seeing that
His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness,
through the true knowledge of Him who called us [d]by His own glory and [e]excellence.
4 [f]For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. 5 Now for this very reason also,
applying all diligence,
in your faith supply moral [g]excellence, and
in your moral excellence, knowledge, 6 and
in your knowledge, self-control, and
in your self-control, perseverance, and
in your perseverance, godliness, 7 and
in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and
in your brotherly kindness, love.
8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins.
10 Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; 11 for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you.”
– 2 Peter 1:1-11
