Today's devotion for today is based on 2 Peter 1:3, "His divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness."
As Christians, we are called to become participants in this divine mystery and thus escape the corruption in the world, be obedient, and lead a godly life. As Christians, we are participants in God's divine mystery on earth, which means we are not alone.
It is by faith that we can seek the path towards the divine: by living godly lives of goodness, understanding, self-control, endurance, godliness, mutual affection, and love. We are encouraged to strive to develop these attributes and values. There is no secret knowledge required. Just by living in this way, our faith can grow, and each of us can become more effective and fruitful as we live our life in Christ. Maybe that is what our family and friends who have not accepted their call and election need to see in us.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, help me to lead a life that is pleasing to you and of benefit to to others. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen
