My friends, God is worthy to be praised!
You know, when we stay focused in God's Word we become compliant to what is expected of us. Simon Peter, Jesus's apostle, in 2 Peter 1:3 tells us that God has given us everything we need to live and to serve Him. So, now that we know that we are in compliance, how do we stay compliant to the will of God? 2 Peter 1:5-7 tells us that because we have God's blessings and favor, we must do our best to add these things to our lives:
"add faith to your virtre; "to your faith, add goodness;
and to virtue, knowledge; to your goodness, add knowledge;
and to knowledge, tempterance; to your knowledge, add self-control;
and to temperance, patience; to your self-control, add patience;
and to patience, godliness; to your patience, add love."
Peter tells us that if all these things are in us, and are growing, they will help us to be useful and productive in our knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. To God Be The Glory!
