BUILD IN LAYERS

2 Peter 1:5

“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge..” [KJV]

2 Peter 1:5-9

Our relationship with God is designed to grow. We are in a building process. We should not have to start from scratch every day. This requires consistency to the process and loyalty to God. It helps to consider your life with God as a wall that is being built. Good materials, the right tools and sound construction principles are required if your wall is to stand. I love the way Peter states it “ to your faith add goodness…” He is saying that if we have faith but stop there, we will fail. If we add goodness and knowledge but leave out self-control, our wall will fall. Get the concept?

Friends, think layers. Keep adding to. Here are a few challenging questions for you to consider and answer if you like:

· Is your relationship with God stronger today than it was last year this time? How about last week?

· Which of the 8 elements listed in 2 Peter 1:5-7 may be lacking? How may you add that element(s)?

· What layer do you plan to “add” today? How will you do that?

Verse 8 explains that if we have these attributes in our lives, we will be effective and productive. Verse 9 explains why so many of us struggle – we are making no spiritual progress. (Culled from the writings of Rick Whitter).

As you go into today, think layers!

Ask the Lord to help you take practical steps from today to keep improving. Not yet saved? Tap: http://bit.ly/1iTOmol
