Small Seed for 12-5-14

Divine Power in You. 

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 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." 2 Peter 1:3-8 (NIV)

According to this Scripture, we have everything we need to lead a godly life, but the key is by “His divine power”. We can't do it on our own. Only by leaning on Christ’s Holiness, can we act like Him and display His good nature. I don’t know about you, but I need self-control, perseverance, godliness, mutual affection, and love. 

Oh, Lord, let me display those! I call on your power for help. I am nothing without you! And then, Lord, make me effective and productive in You, as the Scripture says.

Prayer focus: Your relatives

Action Step: Show love in some way to another person. Suggestion: Write an encouraging note to someone that you know is struggling in some way.
