"His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and excellence..." 2 Peter 1:3
A lot of Christians walk around looking for a missing piece, trying to obtain what they think they are lacking. The trouble is, you're not lacking. You're simply not utilizing what God has already made available to you.
This Sunday, we will wrap up the Family Portrait series with a look at children. My oldest child is just 7 years old. I don't have parenting figured out. I'm 37 years old with aging parents and I don't always know how to effectively care for them. But, everything I need for life and godliness has been given to me by my heavenly Father through Jesus Christ, including how to parent and how to be an honoring adult child to my parents.
When we by faith in Jesus Christ receive the grace of God and are saved, He bestows on us all that we need for life and godliness. No mysteries, no hidden gems, no smoke and mirrors, if you are in the Word and you are in prayer, you will find that God has already given you all things pertaining to life and godliness, whatever it is that you feel you are lacking.
Grace & Peace,
