生命和虔敬的事 [Things that Pertain to Life and Godliness]





Book: 2 Peter (New Testament)
Author: Peter

2 Peter 1:3 :“as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,”

Today’s Meditation: The main reason behind chaotic churches and inability of Christians to live out the salvation is because they lost their purpose in life. They forsake things that pertain to life and godliness in order to pursue meaningless things. All things that pertain to life and godliness are ‘given’. We cannot earn them by our own efforts. Thanks God these things are given to us. It is all about how we use them. God called us so that we can conduct ourselves throughout the time of our stay on earth in fear. For this reason, He had opened our minds to see His glory and virtue. He also equipped us with the instinct of life and godliness. As we know more of His natures, we can enjoy more of His life and godliness. We need to pursue the progression of life and live out a pious life. The motive is within the call and reward from God. We cannot follow Him if He did not attract us in the first place.
