2 Pet 1:8-11
8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.
10 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
In God’s great wisdom, He has chosen you to be His own. He has set you apart for Himself and placed the affirmation of His love as a banner over your life. When you turn to Him and rely on His great promise you demonstrate in your actions that His strength is more than sufficient to face every challenge of your day. Perhaps now, more than ever, we must trust in His great and divine strength to be the light in a dark and desperate world. Regardless of what our day holds for us we know that God’s promise leads us to an eternal kingdom where we will be welcomed by the Hosts of Heaven.
- Thank God for His banner of life and love that He established over your life.
- Take time in His presence to confirm His call on your life as His child.
- Thank Him for the strength of His promise that will keep you firm to the end.
- Thank Him for the sure hope you have of an eternal home in His kingdom.
