Bible: 2 Peter 1:3-7

Believers’ Salvation and the Work of God

1:3 I can pray this because his divine power 1  has bestowed on us everything necessary 2  for life and godliness through the rich knowledge 3  of the one who called 4  us by 5  his own glory and excellence. 1:4 Through these things 6  he has bestowed on us his precious and most magnificent promises, so that by means of what was promised 7  you may become partakers of the divine nature, 8  after escaping 9  the worldly corruption that is produced by evil desire. 10  1:5 For this very reason, 11  make every effort 12  to add to your faith excellence, 13  to excellence, knowledge; 1:6 to knowledge, self-control; to self-control, perseverance; 14  to perseverance, godliness; 1:7 to godliness, brotherly affection; to brotherly affection, unselfish 15  love. 16
