DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION–SAK. EST
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life 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, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 2 Peter 1:3-4
THEME: PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST
WORDS OF HOPE:
Some Christians struggle with sin, spiritual weakness, and apathy. Are such people missing something? Have they been left unequipped by God? What have we not been given in order to lead the life God calls us to? Peter’s answer is simple: We’re not missing anything. We are fully equipped. But we have a choice about whether or not we’ll really use those spiritual tools. This requires effort on our part. How are we equipped? It didn’t happen naturally. We weren’t born with it. We didn’t earn it through hard work or good behavior. For those in Christ, God’s divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness. Like salvation, all of this was ours when we came to know God (through faith in Christ). As Peter will make clear, knowing God, the source of all life, is the only path to being fully equipped to live as God calls us to do. The solution to living is to know Christ as a child should intimately know their parents. Our life of glory is based on what Christ did for us and we should appropriate it as such. It is only on this premise that his Divine power can lead us into Holiness.
• Thank the Lord for His redemptive work in you by Christ Jesus.
• Pray to the Lord that you come into the knowledge of the liberty which He has given you in Christ.
• Pray that you shall grow in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus.
Lord I bless you that through the knowledge of Christ, I have power to live a life full of glory. Amen 🙏🏽
