2 Peter 1:2-4
Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
“His divine power has given us everything we need...” This ultimate truth provides the bedrock for our lives as Christians. I have loved the word “sanctification” since the first time I remember hearing it. We are all, as Christians, on the same journey to God and to holiness. We can always grow, always be better than we were yesterday. We must be open and receptive to that power.
Father God, you have placed me on this journey and I sometimes forget. But I have made steps forward. Help me to keep your holy purposes in my heart and my mind when I am faced with decisions. Amen
