10 Therefore, brothers and sisters, be eager to confirm your call and election. Do this and you will never ever be lost. 11 In this way you will receive a rich welcome into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:10,11 CEB
In this letter’s beginning chapter, Peter affirms that we as Christians understand that we are fully equipped to lead a life in service to God. We also need to make sure that we put the effort into using these tools to their best use. He points out the qualities we should strive for : faith, self-control, godliness and love , to mention some. If we fail to seek these qualities, we are wasting what has been done for us by God through the saving power of His Son !
Let us pray please : Father God, we acknowledge our gratefulness for all the tools you have given to us, so that we can be well-equipped to be Christ-like in our living – replacing doubts with faith ; instead of anger and upset, mutual affection and love for one another. We want to be a body, a church healthy and striving to do all we can to guide and heal this world of ours. And this and so much we can and will do through Your Son’s saving victory at Calvary , it is in His name we pray. Amen
Yours in Christ , Rollie
