Sufficient Provision for Godly Living
“His Divine Power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence” (2 Peter 1:3).
Christians lack nothing when it comes to living a godly life. When God saved us, my Seminary professor said, he backed up the dumb truck and dropped into our lives everything we need. We have everything we need for a godly life.
Matter of fact, we have so many spiritual blessings in Christ that to rehearse them in such a short amount of time would be frivolous. But if we had to just point out a few we would consider the indwelling Holy Spirit, the word of God, and the people of God. These resources alone are worth reflecting deeply on and drinking deeply of, for they are sufficient resources to propel us forward in godly living.
But, O, how often does it seem that Christians are continually searching for the next extraordinary thing or experience to catapult them into spirituality. This is a sad discourse on our current Christian climate. Be that as it may, we must not be influenced by these contrivances. We need but draw upon what is already ours in Christ, which is everything sufficient for a godly life.
