“I have been sent to proclaim faith to those God has chosen and to teach them to know the truth that shows them how to live godly lives.”
“By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. – He has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.”
II Peter 1:3-4
In his book, “Good To Great”, Jim Collins shares some of the traits that great companies have. One was their pursuit of BHAGS. BHAGS are “big hairy audacious goals.” As Christians we are given a BHAG that separates us from those just existing in this world. The good to great BHAG God gives us is to be like Him. We are to live a Godly life. This seems like a total impossibility until we read what Paul and Peter instructed the church. Paul shares that he was sent to teach the “truth that shows us how to live a Godly life”, and that is what he did. Paul fills his epistles with this amazing truth. Peter tells us that God, by His divine power, has given us everything we need for living a Godly life. Part of this “everything” is the precious promises that God gives us, enabling us to “share His divine nature.” Today, you can begin a quest to recognize and understand all the truth and promises that God has for you in His word. As you do, He promises that His divine power will enable you to live like Him, resulting in a more Godly life.
Father, thank you for Your promises that are in Your Holy Word. Help me to know and understand them. Help me to apply Your truth to my life that I may live a Godly life.
