Bible: 2 Peter 1:2-8

1:2 May grace and peace be lavished on you 1  as you grow 2  in the rich knowledge 3  of God and of Jesus our Lord! 4 

Believers’ Salvation and the Work of God

1:3 I can pray this because his divine power 5  has bestowed on us everything necessary 6  for life and godliness through the rich knowledge 7  of the one who called 8  us by 9  his own glory and excellence. 1:4 Through these things 10  he has bestowed on us his precious and most magnificent promises, so that by means of what was promised 11  you may become partakers of the divine nature, 12  after escaping 13  the worldly corruption that is produced by evil desire. 14  1:5 For this very reason, 15  make every effort 16  to add to your faith excellence, 17  to excellence, knowledge; 1:6 to knowledge, self-control; to self-control, perseverance; 18  to perseverance, godliness; 1:7 to godliness, brotherly affection; to brotherly affection, unselfish 19  love. 20  1:8 For if 21  these things are really yours 22  and are continually increasing, 23  they will keep you from becoming 24  ineffective and unproductive in your pursuit of 25  knowing our Lord Jesus Christ more intimately. 26
