Meditation                                                                         

Scripture.  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.  2 Peter 1:4 KJV

Peter wrote this shortly before his death.  He wants us to know of the precious promises that are ours through faith in Jesus. 

He encourages us to get to know the Lord better in this short letter.  He explains that we are able to overcome because of Christ's Divine Nature - as we take more of it on daily through communing with our Lord, asking for His guidance, reading His Word to receive that guidance and walking in God confidence.

The world is full of "the lust of life" and through Christ we can escape the corruption of sin.  This is a great and precious promise of God to us.

Prayer

Lord, thank You, that You have made a Way for me to escape the corruption of this world. I accept it. Help me to be a partaker of your Divine Nature.  In Jesus's Name.  Amen.
