::Devotional:: ‘We Have All We Need’

October 11, 2010

What’s the secret to living a godly lifestyle?  Well, while the secret is a bit mysterious, it’s really no secret at all.  Also, while it may be no secret it’s not exactly easy and only comes with an intentional effort of diligence, fortitude, and spiritual maturity.  The power to live a godly lifestyle has been granted to us by God and is administered through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  We have been given all we need to live a life of godliness; it’s up to us to live it out.

I am far from where I want to be in my spiritual maturity.  I can testify that I’ve come a long way but this is a long journey with many many miles ahead.  I’m thankful the Lord has provided the promises and instructions of his word to help me along the way.  They are there for you too.

3 His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 2 Peter 1:3-4

By God’s very own glory and goodness he has given us his precious promises so that we can freely live with Christ-like character.  The power is there, we simply need to make better use of it.

-Stay Rooted Col. 2:7-
