Divine Nature: Part 3

In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone. 2 Peter 1:6-7 NLT

We talked about God’s promises to us. We are to respond to those promises in faith. We need to supplement that faith with a knowledge of moral excellence that only God can give. With that comes patience in life and an endurance that is far beyond our human means.

We are called to strive for godliness in Christ Jesus. Although we will not receive sanctification until we get to Heaven, we are justified by faith and have been declared righteous. Think of earth a spiritual boot camp that prepares us for things to come. Praise be to God.
