We have everything we need to live a life that pleases God. It was all given to us by God’s own power, when we learned that he had invited us to share in his wonderful goodness. God made great and marvelous promises, so that his nature would become part of us. Then we could escape our evil desires and the corrupt influences of this world.
2 Peter 1:3-4
What do you need to live a life that pleases God? Do you need more faith? Do you need good works that give Him glory? Do you need a heart that is concerned about those who are lost? Of course, you need all of those things and more. But these verses in 2 Peter 1 tell us an amazing truth. God has invited us to share in His wonderful goodness and has promised that His nature would become part of us.
He said it simply in Colossians 1:27 with the words “Christ in you, the hope of glory!” You see when Christ is in you, you have everything you need to please God.
Your job is to let Jesus direct your steps and give you the wisdom you need for every decision in your life. When you do that your life will please God in everything you do.
“Lord Jesus, show me everything You want me to do today as the Nature of God becomes part of me. It is too wonderful for me to comprehend, but it is Your promise and I choose to believe it! Praise Your Holy Name forever! Amen.”
