What a fantastic blessing for us to be at peace with the creator of all things! Not only that, but we are under his grace as well! It is just a great way to start every day – under God’s grace and being at peace with Him…
“MAY GRACE AND PEACE BE MULTIPLIED TO YOU in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.” (2 Pet. 1:2)
Wow, not just grace and peace but MULTIPLIED GRACE AND PEACE! How do we obtain this?
“His divine power HAS GIVEN US EVERYTHING WE NEED FOR A GODLY LIFE through our KNOWLEDGE of him…” (2 Pet. 1:3)
Remember the word “knowledge” comes from the Greek word Epignosis two words: epi – marked or upon, ginosko – a relation between the person knowing and the person known -or- connection, union as between husband and wife.
“…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.” (2 Peter 1:4)
We have partaken of an earthly, sensual, and devilish nature; the design of God by Christ IS TO REMOVE THIS, and to MAKE US PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE; to have, to do, and to be, WHAT GOD HAS PROMISED!
THANK YOU, LORD, FOR YOUR MARVELOUS GRACE…
