2 Peter 1:3

“By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.”


The power to live a godly life comes from God. Because we don’t have the resources to be truly godly, God allows us to “share his divine nature” in order to keep us from sin and to help us live for him. When we are born again, God by his Spirit empowers us with his own goodness. (John 3:6; 14:17-23; 2 Corinthians 5:21; and 1 Peter 1:22-23) To enjoy the privileges God offers us freely, we must grow in our knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. (Life Application Study Bible)


Jesus, we do want to live a godly life. Help us look to you and not ourselves. We receive your ‘divine nature’ so that we can live above Sin and live life fully in you.
