Hey My Brothers & Sisters;
I am sitting at my computer, I have a screen saver that has the bolded scripture below, and to be honest I may actually read it once a week. (it dose makes one look good to have this on your screen…LOL). Well it just jumped out at me so I pulled up the whole thing. The last part really hit me, Therefore, my brothers and sisters,[a] make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble.
I asked myself if I realize the power I/we have in being believers and what God has given us through his Son.
I hope you all have an amazing weekend and perhaps God will use us in some way that will glorify him and bless those around us.
Confirming One’s Calling and Election
3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life 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, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.
10 Therefore, my brothers and sisters,[a] make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
