“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:” (2Peter 1:3).
Imagine being called to do a certain task and you are not given the tools to execute that task. It is frustrating to know how to do something and not have the wherewithal to do it. A doctor needs a fully equipped hospital to function, a driver needs a fully functional car to drive, and a Christian needs all things that pertain to life and godliness to be able to live a godly Christian life.
For many who have embraced Christianity as a religion, living the authentic Christian life remains a pipe dream. They think living the Christian life God designed is close to impossible because they have not understood that God does not request anything He has not supplied. He is the all sufficient God who needs nothing. The same God who called us to live the God life has given us everything we need to live it.
You have the Holy Spirit of God, His holy Word, the church family, ministry gifts, and power of attorney to use and live by the name of Jesus. You have the ministry of angels, God on your side, Jesus your advocate with the Father. You have been justified, called, sanctified and glorified. What is it that you lack? Absolutely nothing. You cannot be this resourced and live an ordinary life. You cannot be this resourced and perish like a stray dog. You are too blessed to fail, too loved to be poor and too treasured to die. Live to your best potentials.
I am too blessed to fail, too loved to be poor, and too treasured to die.
