Let’s focus on growing in our knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ each and every day. In the Greek, knowledge means, “to know through participation.” We add to our knowledge when we take the Truth of the Word and apply it to our every day lives.
This word from Peter is a win-win for us when we desire to grow in our knowledge of Jesus because we will receive:
1) Grace and peace in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus.
2) Everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of Him.
3) His Divine nature, so we can escape the corruption of the world and evil desires through our knowledge of Him.
4) We will live effective and productive lives through our knowledge of Jesus.
We have to understand that these traits are truly a benefit to our everyday lives and they allow the growing process of the Spirit to begin and come alive in us!
Confession for today: “Holy Spirit, allow me to grow in Your knowledge and grace each and every day so that I can grow in You and escape the corruption of this world each and every day!”
Seek Him first!
