Ryan’s Miracle Watch 4/25/16

2 Peter 1:3-8   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. 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.  For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 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.

Just got home from working out and read Gretchen’s verse for the day. How fitting, as it somewhat parallels what I’m trying to accomplish by working out (getting healthier, stronger, gaining stamina, etc.) and how one becomes an effective and productive child of God. To become better at anything, one must apply him/her self. God’s already given us everything we need for a godly life. Now, it’s up to us to make every effort to add to our faith; build those muscles. If we exercise (run with perseverance), read (God’s Word), practice, sweat a little, eat the right food (the Bread of Life), even just a little bit each day, the results will come. Each day we choose to make time for certain things. Make sure to choose the right things to make time for…

Now I get to go watch Ryan for the evening. He’s someone I love making time for…

Thank you for the verse Gretchen!!
