LIFE IN CHRIST

2 Peter 1

 1  Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained an equally precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ:

 2  Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

 3  According as his divine power has given to us all things that concern life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who has called us to glory and virtue:

 4  By which are given to us exceedingly great and precious promises: that by these you may be sharers in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

 5  And besides this, making every effort, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

 6  And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

 7  And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness love.

 8  For if these things are in you, and abound, they guarantee that you shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
