Escaping the world’s corruption!

Scripture reading for November 14th:  2nd Peter 1, Psalm 85-86, Proverbs 12

Key Scriptures:  2nd Peter 1:2-4 “May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.  His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and excellence, by which He has granted to us His precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.”

Peter prayed for God’s grace and peace to be multiplied towards all believers as they grew in their knowledge of Jesus.  God’s divine power through the Holy Spirit living in them would give them all they needed for living in the hostile world and reflecting Christ’s holy life to those around them.  It is by faith that believers claim and live out the promises of His Holy Word and escape the world’s corruption and their own sinful desires.

Faith confession:  I have received from God everything I need for life and godliness through an increasing knowledge of Jesus Christ, Son of God.  Lord help me daily to faithfully appropriate Your promises and escape the corruption of the world and my sinful flesh.

Proverbs 12:28 “In the path of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death.”
