Plans for 2015 (3)

Yesterday we read Paul’s list of things that we should have in our lives. In our Bible verses today, we read a similar list from Peter.
Peter includes these things in his list of blessings that we should have: faith, goodness, knowledge, self-control, patience, devotion to God, kindness and love (verses 5-7). “If all these things are in you and growing, you will never fail to be useful to God. You will produce the kind of fruit that should come from your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (verse 8).
Peter also tells us how we can have these blessings. “Jesus has the power of God. And his power has given us everything we need to live a life devoted to God. We have these things because we know him” (verse 3). Verse 4 says that if we have these blessings, we can “share in being like God.”
You can have a new year filled with God’s blessings. Trust and serve Him today!
