Knowledge Of Him Releases Divine Power
His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. – 2 Peter 1:3
Some people have only learned that there is salvation from punishment through faith in the blood of Christ, but there is so much more to be learned from the word of God that affects our quality of life. We call those folks “fire escape Christians” – they only know enough about God to escape judgment.
Peter tells us that divine power is released to us through knowledge of Him and His word. That divine power enables us to live in such a way that his glory and goodness is seen in us.
One reason why so many “fire escape Christians” have such a problem living in a way so that others recognize the Christ in them is that they are full of all sorts of knowledge, but they know very little about what God has prepared to be released through them.
We know so much about our jobs, our hobbies, our sports, and we know so little about the God of glory who has released his divine power to those who will make the effort to increase their knowledge of him.
Knowledge of Him releases His glory and goodness in our life. Divine Power is released in us through knowing Him. Get the picture? Get to know him and gain divine power!
Prayer: Lord, fill my heart with a desire to know you more. I ask that your word become a priority in my life and that I gain a knowledge of you that will release divine power to live worthy of the calling of Christ Jesus. In Jesus name, amen.
Message: Knowledge of Him releases His glory and goodness in our life. Divine Power is released in us through knowing Him. Get the picture? Get to know him and gain divine power!
Affirmation: As my knowledge of Him increases my relationship with him deepens, my faith grows and His power, glory and goodness is released in my life.
Reflection: It would be good to take an inventory of your knowledge base. Do you know more about your job, your hobbies, sports and politics than you do about God? Here is a quick test: How many statistics can you quote about your favorite team or player? How man Scripture passages can you quote? Just asking.
