My Pastor is still teaching on our Identity. Yesterday’s message really hit home for me in a few ways. I want to share a Scripture and define the words like he did. I hope this makes sense to you like it did to me.
2 Peter 1: 2 & 3, says, “
Power: dynamite, force of energy
Godliness: pay homage, have reverence for (It’s not about following rules)
Knowledge: personal experience, “felt and seen personally”
Promise: a voluntarily, spontaneous type, doing with expecting nothing in return; not a type done because one is asked to do something
Divine nature: participating in God’s presence
Escape: flee, move on, break away from
Corrupt: decay, lower level living
Evil desire: focused passion
SO, God’s force of energy, gives us everything we need to have reverence for the life He has given us through personal experience of His glory and goodness. Through these He is very majestic with doing things for us, not expecting anything in return, so that we can participate in His presence, fleeing from the lower level living that our human focused passion brings.
Let that sink in and I will write more tomorrow.
