His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. By these He has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desires. 2 Peter 1:3-4 HCSB
Having the right tools always makes a job easier. My children gave me a new power washer for my birthday. This weekend I used it to clean the gutters and siding on my house. It was amazing how easy it made the job and how new it made everything look. Without the power washer it would have taken a much longer time to complete the task and the end product would not have looked as clean.
God has given you all the tools you need to be a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. Through a relationship with Jesus we all receive everything we need for this life and for the life to come. The power to live a godly life comes from God, who allows us to share in His divine nature. Through the power of the Holy Spirit that dwells within each believer, we can resist the temptations of our world and do what is right. In so doing, we bring honor and glory to God.
Challenge: Thank God for allowing you to share in His divine nature by providing the Holy Spirit to convict you and guide you to do what is good and pleasing to Him.
