We don’t have the knowledge we need to make our Christian lives work right!
Everyone is a theologian it’s just a matter of whether you’ll be a good one or a bad one!
- Our faith is as precious as the Apostle’s faith.
- We have everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him.
- We are invited to participate in God’s divine nature.
Divine Nature: we need to become more like Jesus and experience life in that way.
How do we experience the “divine nature”? Knowledge. And in Peter’s list, knowledge comes before many other virtues (such as self-control, perseverance, and love).
- Peter promises that if we apply knowledge we will be effective and productive.
- Without knowledge and other virtues the Bible calls us “nearsighted” and “blind”.
- Pursuing knowledge about God makes our rewards more certain.
