2 Peter 1: 5 â€“ 7 (KJV)
â€œAnd beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.â€
The path to Godâ€™s purpose for each of us in life is not a complicated one.Â He laid it out, in black and white.Â The trick is to follow that path, and itâ€™s not always that easy or fun, but it is always simple.
Itâ€™s just a few, little steps that lead the way to Godâ€™s blessing here on earth.Â Itâ€™s just a few, little habits that can help change a life.Â Itâ€™s just a few, little words that seem to take a life time to master.
Recently, my pastor did a sermon based around these few, little words.Â It struck a cord with me that is still resonating today.Â Over the next few days, I will be breaking down these steps in an attempt to break through to blessing.
Will you join me in the journey through faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness, and charity?Â I have no doubt that through study, prayer, and patience, the breakthrough will occur.Â By encouraging each other and prompting each other, it will be all that easier to reach.
I urge you to dig in to the word and to break on through to the other side of 2 Peter 1: 5 â€“ 7.Â Find your way from faith to charity, and meet God along the way.
