Personalize 2 Peter 1:3-11 (The Message), by speaking your name in every blank.
Everything that goes into a life of pleasing God has been miraculously given to by getting to know, personally and intimately, the One who invited to God. The best invitation ever received! We were also given absolutely terrific promises to pass on to —your tickets to participation in the life of God after turned his/her back on a world corrupted by lust.
So don’t lose a minute in building on what has been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love, each dimension fitting into and developing the others. With these qualities active and growing in ’s life, no grass will grow under his/her feet, no day will pass without its reward as matures in his/her experience of his/her Master Jesus. Without these qualities can’t see what’s right before him/her, oblivious that ’s old sinful life has been wiped off the books.
So, , confirm God’s invitation to you, his choice of you. Don’t put it off; do it now. Do this, and will have his/her life on a firm footing, the streets paved and the way wide open into the eternal kingdom of his/her Master and Savior, Jesus Christ.
