Read 2 Peter 1
Peter encourages followers of Jesus to make every effort to be effective and productive in their knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is so that we do not forget that we have been cleansed from our past sins and are called into a new life. The only way that we can walk in this freedom of a new life is by staying in tune with God, by learning more about him and allowing him to transform us in goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, mutual affection, and love.
Looking at this list, what areas of your life do you need God to transform? Alone, you cannot add these things onto yourself, but Scripture shines as God’s words to us about himself and his redeeming grace.
