"Divine Design"

2 Peter 1

I love the descriptive words found in this first chapter of second Peter.

Words like: precious faith
divine power
true knowledge
glory and excellance
precious promises
magnificent promises
divine nature

I see these words as a list of ingredients that God
has poured into our life...providing all that is necessary
to live a godly life.....

Another list of words STANDS out to me and builds on
the first:

Words like: moral excellence
knowledge (wisdom)
brotherly kindness
unselfish love

We must cooperate with God, "apply all diligence",
submitting and yielding to the divine provisions
granted to us....and we will see growth in these
areas of our life.

For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure,
they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive
in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:8

So the important question for me/us to ask is this:
Are all these qualities growing and evident in my life?

God bless your day,
