The Great Escape

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to[c] his own glory and excellence,[d] 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. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue,[e] and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities[f] are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Peter ESV)

When we get tired of all the evil around us; when we are faced with the struggles that come with life on earth, these are the characteristics provided by our Lord Jesus Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit.  So, let me list them again for our edification:

Faith, Virtue, Knowledge, Self-control, Steadfastness, Godliness, Brotherly affection and LOVE.  I promised myself that I would be fruitful and share the Joy and Hope that is in Christ.  I’ve not done the best job, but  with GOD’s help, it isn’t too late.  As we see sin rear its ugly head through hatred and violence,  wouldn’t it be a HOOT if we, who know the Truth, would share the Truth in our Walk; in our Talk and in our Going In and Coming Out, in every endeavor, every moment of every day?  Since GOD isn’t mocked and never makes a mistake, what more do we need to guarantee success than that provided by His Still Small Voice?  Won’t you join me in prayer for healing in every heart?  I am certain that the prayer from the cleansed hearts of those called by GOD’s name will not be in vain.  The Time is Now, The Need is Great!  Amen?  AMEN
