Bible: 2 Pet. 1:8-11
1:8 For if 1 these things are really yours 2 and are continually increasing, 3 they will keep you from becoming 4 ineffective and unproductive in your pursuit of 5 knowing our Lord Jesus Christ more intimately. 6 1:9 But 7 concerning the one who lacks such things 8 – he is blind. That is to say, he is 9 nearsighted, since he has forgotten about the cleansing of his past sins. 1:10 Therefore, brothers and sisters, 10 make every effort to be sure of your calling and election. 11 For by doing this 12 you will never 13 stumble into sin. 14 1:11 For thus an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be richly provided for you.
