    on May 16, 2021 at 5:00 am

    …you may be partakers of the divine nature… —2 Peter 1:4We are made “partakers of the divine nature,” receiving and sharing God’s own nature through His promises. Then we have to work that divine nature into our human nature by developing godly habits. The first habit to develop is the habit of recognizing God’s provision for us. We say, however,…

    …that you may know what is the hope of His calling… —Ephesians 1:18Remember that you have been saved so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in your body (see 2 Corinthians 4:10). Direct the total energy of your powers so that you may achieve everything your election as a child of God provides; rise every time to whatever occasion may come…

    …that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. —2 Corinthians 4:10We have to develop godly habits to express what God’s grace has done in us.

    …strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men. —Acts 24:16God’s commands to us are actually given to the life of His Son in us.

Conscience is that ability within me that attaches itself to…

    If these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful… —2 Peter 1:8When we first begin to form a habit, we are fully aware of it. There are times when we are aware of becoming virtuous and godly, but this awareness should only be a stage we quickly pass through as we grow spiritually. If we stop at this stage, we will…

  • “Love One Another”
    on May 11, 2021 at 5:00 am

    …add to your…brotherly kindness love. —2 Peter 1:5, 7Love is an indefinite thing to most of us; we don’t know what we mean when we talk about love. Love is the loftiest preference of one person for another, and spiritually Jesus demands that this sovereign preference be for Himself (see Luke 14:26). Initially, when “the love of God has…

  • Take the Initiative

    …add to your faith virtue… —2 Peter 1:5Add means that we have to do something. We are in danger of forgetting that we cannot do what God does, and that God will not do what we can do. We cannot save nor sanctify ourselves— God does that. But God will not give us good habits or character, and…
