Growing in Grace and Knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; 15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation--as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures. 17 You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen. (II Peter 3:14-18) The Bible states that those who are IN CHRIST, must "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ". If you are not growing, then you are stagnant. Growth can only happen by reading The Word of God, then "seeking" understanding of the things you don't understand and then actually living The Word. Do you become perfect with growth? No, but you do live victoriously!!! Have a blessed day and May God's favor be with you today and everyday. Tomorrow may come, but it is not promised.
