“The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
II Peter 1:8 (NLT)
Peter shared how we are to live. He writes, “Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness.” Then he writes that the more we grow in these qualities the more productive and useful we will be in our knowledge of Christ. Have you ever thought of that before? We know that God wants us to serve Him but have you ever considered that He wants you to be productive and useful in your knowledge of Him? He does. God wants you to serve Him and the best way to do that is to know Him better and better. As you do, your personality, behavior and desires will be more like His. His power, knowledge and most of all, His love will be exhibited in your life. Today, choose to know Him more.
Father, help me be more productive and useful in my knowledge of You. Help me to supplement my faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness. I ask this in Jesus’ name.
