Partaking of the Divine Nature of God

To abide in Jesus is to partake of the divine power God has given to us, power that pertains to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue. Our Father who art in heaven, because of the precious blood of the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, has given us exceedingly great and precious promises, promises by which we might be partakers of the divine nature and escape the corruption and lusts of this world. In 2 PETER 1, the Apostle Peter told us the ingredients we need in order to partake of the divine nature of God, which are as follows: 


In all due diligence... 


To your faith, add virtue (excellence)...

To your virtue, add knowledge...

To your knowledge, add temperance (self-control)...

To your temperance, add patience...

To your patience, add godliness...

To your godliness, add brotherly kindness...

To your brotherly kindness, add love
