We are becoming more like Christ.

We are becoming more like Christ.


By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.
— 2 Peter 1:1-3

Think it through

  1. The apostle Peter found the secret to growing in Christ. What is it?
  2. Is it possible to live a godly life?
  3. What do God’s promises help us do?


Our Father, thank you for giving us everything we need to lead godly lives that please you.  I am grateful for those who have gone before me and can teach and encourage me.  Help me seek out the promises in your word as I would search for other precious gifts.  Help me to always speak the truth in love because you are truth and love and that is how your children should speak. Thank you for revealing yourself through the example of Christ who showed us what your unconditional love looks like in the flesh.
