4Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. 2 Peter 1:4“We have been given God’s ‘Spirit’, which makes Christ ‘real’ in our lives. We can actually now, as Peter puts it, ‘participate in the divine nature’. How, then, in the face of so great a truth, can we ask for toys and trinkets? How can we lust after lesser gifts and itch for religious and spiritual ‘thingies’? We’ve been touched from on high by the fires of the Almighty and given divine life, a life that has passed through death – the very resurrection life of the Son of God Himself. How can we not be fired up?”
What a great thought; a perfect daily devotion to reflect on with my first cup of coffee!
