Spreading God's Love Thru Prayer
To The Family
Early Morning Manna
Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue. (fortitude). - 2 Peter 1:5
ONE great difficulty with the Lord's people is that, even when determined for a right course and thus resisting the temptation, they do not take sufficiently positive action.
Many say to the tempter, I have concluded not to yield at this time.
Thus they leave in their own minds an opportunity open by which the tempter may return.
Our Lord's course was the proper one: we should dismiss the tempter once and forever.
We should take our stand so firmly that even the adversary would not think it worth while to come back at us along that line; "Leave me, adversary-- I will worship and serve my God alone."
The MSG reads...
So don’t lose a minute in building on what you’ve been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love, each dimension fitting into and developing the others.
With these qualities active and growing in your lives, no grass will grow under your feet, no day will pass without its reward as you mature in your experience of our Master Jesus.
Without these qualities you can’t see what’s right before you, oblivious that your old sinful life has been wiped off the books.
2 Peter 1:5-9 MSG
