Great and Precious Promises

Re: Verse reading–2 Peter 1:1-12 (day two)
“Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption of the world caused by evil desires.”  Have you been looking for a way to escape corruption and evil desires?  Who hasn’t?  This word of comfort is so much more than a platitude it is a call to discipline yourself.  The passage goes on to remind you how you can take part in that divine nature; by adding goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love.  Against these there is nothing on earth that can  shake you from those promises.  This is not an inactive faith, as we discipline our minds and hearts we come closer and closer to those great and precious promises.
