“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” – 2 Peter 1:3
“Home is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other. It is the place of confidence. It is the place where we tear off the mask of guarded and suspicious coldness which the world forces us to wear in self-defence, and where we pour out the unreserved communications of full and confiding hearts. It is the spot where expressions of tenderness gush out without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule”, (quote by *Frederick William Robertson)
Re-read the above quote but replace the word “home” with the words “a godly life”.
We can live a “godly life”! Comfortable and free to be ourselves, “where tenderness gush out without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule”. God has given us everything we need – he has given us the power to grow in our surroundings and love others by giving of ourselves.
Our Heavenly Father, thank you for your glory and goodness. Thank you that we are able to strengthen our faith. Forgive us that our faith is not always a part of all we do. Thank you for letting us know you better and giving us a whole new way to look at life and the fullness of Christ. Help us to be hard working believers so we can help others know that all believers have the power of the Holy Spirit available to them to live a godly life. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
*Robertson served as curate to several churches from 1840 to 1847, and became the incumbent of the Trinity Chapel, Brighton, August 15, 1847.
