“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” 2 Peter 1:3 (NIV)
How true it is that God called us by His goodness. When we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior God gives us a new life but that is only the beginning of a wonderful process initiated by Him. It was not our idea, it was His. Our promise today is much like the promise we had in yesterday's reading. It is essential to understand this promise. Having called us and having brought us into His family our heavenly Father continues to enable us to fit into his family. Our verse tells us that God gives us everything we need for life and godliness. God wants us to be godly, to be like Him but He does not leave us to work at it by ourselves. He promises to supply the ability to live in a godly way and He'll do that today. Let's allow Him to do that each day and every hour of each day.
