Make Every Effort – Ultimately depending on God – Part II

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word:

Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; II Peter 1: 4-6

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, II Peter 1:10

But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells. So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him. Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. II Peter 3:13-15

Thought:

Peter concludes this brief letter as he began, urging his readers to grow in the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Every day we need to draw closer to Christ Jesus so that we will be prepared to stand for truth in any and all circumstances.
