Ever felt this way ?
In relationships ?
In ministry ?
@ your work ?
2 Peter 1:3
” HIS divine POWER has GIVEN US…
EVERYTHING we need for LIFE…..
through our knowledge of HIM who CALLED US…
by HIS OWN glory and goodness.
a. HE called us and HE is equipping us to live life !
vs. 4 ” …. so that YOU may PARTICIPATE in the
DIVINE NATURE and ESCAPE the ~ corruption of this world ”
a. you have to WANT TO participate in the DIVINE NATURE….
not head knowledge of GOD
THINK of GOD’s Nature….all of it….
** do YOU want to participate in it ? on earth ?
JUMP IN ….NOW !
Then here comes the recipe to not be :
” INEFFECTIVE + UNPRODUCTIVE ”
vs. 5 ” Make every effort ( no matter what )
1. FAITH – deep belief what is not seen as is
2. GOODNESS – do good, do good, do good
3. KNOWLEDGE of GOD – get in HIS WORD
4. SELF CONTROL – in all areas….
5. PERSEVERANCE – 1st step, 2nd step, last step
6. GODLINESS ~ in 2017
7. BROTHERLY KINDNESS – all brothers,
not just ones we choose
8. LOVE – the love is…. patient, kind…not self seeking
” FOR IF YOU POSESS…..
these qualities in INCREASING MEASURE,
they, they , they will keep you from being
INEFFECTIVE + UNPRODUCTIVE in your knowledge of OUR
LORD JESUS CHRIST.”
God I receive and ask for the divine help to live this
in my own life, why would I want to walk this earth and
not be productive and not be effective for YOUR KINGDOM ?”
in The Mighty Name of JESUS CHRIST , amen.
