Just Thoughts… #12

2 Peter 1:5-8
“Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to gooodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love……..”

Wow! What a message right?

God wants us to be productive in our lives. But it’s really sad and disheartening how many of us still ends of being unproductive. He wants us to have more than just head knowledge, he wants us to put it to work in our lives and be effective and productive with it.

But for me, I’ve got to put out some effort and try to grow in these qualities and I need you to do the same! Peter is saying, “Okay folks, God wants you to get after it and make a difference through your life!” I’m ready! Let’s begin today! Shall we?

  1. I love this passage! Many years ago, I read the words in the passage that says โ€œincreasing measureโ€ and realized that the instructions are like a recipe. We begin with faith (in which is impossible to please God without it) and add to our faith, goodness. If we want knowledge, we increase in faith and goodness. Self-control requires more faith, goodness and knowledge, etc. So, as we continue on the path, we increase in all of these things with the end result being love.
