REVEALED WORD TODAY
//READ: 2 PETER 1:5-9 //
5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.
Beloved, it is not enough to have faith i.e. to believe the Word of God, all the above including love must be added. In fact, faith works by love (Gal. 5:6), without love, faith cannot work! So, if you have faith you must add these seven qualities to it for there to be result. Did you notice that five out of the seven qualities are part of the fruit of the Spirit?
PRAYER: Pray that these seven qualities will be in you and abound so that you will have a fruitful life.
