Good Morning! “The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins.” 2 Peter 1:8-9 NLT
Growing in faith, goodness, knowledge, practicing self-control, perseverance, kindness and love are spiritual qualities/characteristics of Christians who are maturing in their relationship with the Lord. In this way, you will produce fruit and be effective in your witness to others.
Don’t be discouraged by the seven qualities. As you grow in the word, they will begin to develop super naturally. Stay focused on the Lord so that you will turn away from or recognize when you begin to fall back into former habits. Remember what the Lord has done for you and in you.
While holding on to one promise after another, continue to mature…
Promise: “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:8 NLT
Which promise will you read about today?
Have a wonderful day! Keep seeking his word! Keep believing! Keep praying!
