“This letter is from Simon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ. I am writing to you who share the same precious faith we have. – May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.”
II Peter 1:1-2 (NLT)
I love Peter’s faith in Christ. He went from a follower of Christ to a slave and apostle. And in his eyes, Jesus went from an itinerant Rabbi to Messiah to his Savior and Lord. What was his secret? How did he grow in his knowledge and experience of Christ? It was God’s grace. The very favor of God was given to him so he could grow in the Lord. The same is given to you. God has poured His knowledge into your mind and heart through the person of the Holy Spirit. Why? Because He has chosen to be gracious toward you. Grace is a gift of God to you. It is His unmerited divine assistance. Today, accept His assistance. Invite God to “give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.”
Father and Jesus our Lord, I need Your grace. I need Your Holy Spirit to help me grow in my knowledge of You. Help me, guide me, instruct me, I pray. May Your grace be alive in my heart.
