LIFE AND GODLINESS
2 Peter 1:3&4
…as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
IN CHRIST IS LIFE AND GODLINESS
Abide in Christ and His word, until the knowledge of His will and purpose resounds within you – this is the key to an abundant life.
Jesus said – abundant life is found in Him.
CALLED TO LIVE IN HIS GLORY AND VIRTUE
We are called to reveal His glory in every way here on earth – but not at the expense of losing His virtue in our lives.
ALL THINGS PERTAINING TO LIFE AND GODLINESS
Both life and godliness can exist together- in Christ.
We are promised all things in Christ. Life – health – strength – prosperity – wholeness – etc etc.
Couple that with godliness and you have the overcoming life.
REVEALED TO US THROUGH GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES
God has been so good to us to reveal Himself through the written page. The Book of Life is filled with great and precious promises.
We know the planned abundant life for us – as we find it in the promises of God.
BY WHICH WE ARE PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE
The promises – when believed by faith – cause us to step into the grace of God – Roman’s 5:2 – by which we begin to partake of the fullness of God.
Grace is God’s fulness – so we can partake fully of the divine nature of Christ.
BY WHICH WE ESCAPE THE CORRUPTION OF THIS WORLD THROUGH LUST
Believing the promises of God for all things pertaining to life and Godliness – and then pursuing our inheritance by faith – will help us escape the pull of this world with all its fleshly lusts.
FLEE WORLDLY LUSTS
BY FINDING YOUR FULNESS
