2 Peter 1:3-8
3 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, 4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. 5 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, 7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. 8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Have you ever read anything many times, but missed the major point of the article? I have always loved this passage of Scripture. For example, the essence of building one’s faith by gathering right-minded actions and the putting each on top of the other into a life altering mind set. All of these wonderful attributes are available to us. Once set, this God-given gift remains in our psyche forever, never to leave us.
What point did I miss? The words, “so that through them (God’s “precious and very great promises”) you may become partakers of the divine nature.”
AMAZING! We humans “may become partakers of the divine nature.” That’s how we build a life-altering mind set, a “God-given [gift] that remains in our psyche forever, never to leave us.
What more do we need?
