A Great Adventure

Peter calls for diligent, disciplined, life-long effort on the part of the Christian. It is a challenge to every Christian for all the days of their lives

And beside this, giving all diligence,

add to your faith virtue;

and to virtue knowledge;

and to knowledge temperance;

and to temperance patience;

and to patience godliness;

and to godliness brotherly kindness;

and to brotherly kindness charity.

2 Peter 1:5-7

This is not a list of imperatives, duties, or activities. Peter is not writing about “how to,” but about the kind of person the Christian should strive to become.


Where I'm imperfect, please forgive my imperfections.

Where I'm striving for virtue, please help me.

Where I'm succeeding, let me not be boastful or proud.

Help me grow to love you with my whole heart and soul.

Today's Inspiration:
Daily Gratitude

Until Next Time

The greatest adventure in
knowing God,
begins at the Cross of Christ and ends with a "Hallelujah."
