The promise of His Spirit

Re: Verse reading–2 Peter 1:1-12 (day seven)
“Through these, He has given us His great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature.” (v 4)  Peter is likely thinking of his own experience.  When the Holy Spirit filled him (Pentecost) it changed his life forever.  No longer was he limited in life by his own meager resources.  The LIFE of Christ flowed in/through him.  He became a participant in the nature and powers of God!  Are we convinced and clear that this truth is the foundation of the Christian life? Do we proclaim and live a life that is the fulfillment of the Old Testament promises?  “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel. . .I will put My law IN them.”  (Jeremiah 31:31,33)  “And you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.”  (Acts 1:8)  We can participate in His LIFE.  He promised!
