脱离世界 [Escape the World]





Book: 2 Peter (New Testament)
Author: Peter

2 Peter 1:4 :“by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”

Today’s Meditation: God’s promises are precious and great. However, many Christians do not treasure His promises and pursue things outside His promises instead. We have attained the promises of God. It is no longer the problem of seeking His promises, but to withdraw and utilise His precious promises. God will fulfil what he has promised. We will not be able to experience His promises if we do not follow Him. The key to withstand His promises is by loving Him. We will not sin against Him on purpose if we love Him, especially when we do not want to sin against His holy nature. As we emphasise on God’s promises and love, we will be able to escape the corruption that is in the world through lust, and we can have share of His nature. As we pursue God, we will mature on spiritual life and have more of His nature while we can escape the corruption that is in the world through lust by practising holy lifestyle. Today’s world is going against God’s nature. The more we pursue of this world, the more we will be away from His nature. If we were to follow Him, we can escape the world easily.
