Dear Hope family,
Thought for the Week
2 Peter – Productive Christians!
2 Peter 1v5-8 “faith .. goodness .. knowledge .. self-control .. perseverance … godliness .. brotherly kindness … love. If your possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive”
In business, productivity and effectiveness are important. God wants us to be productive as Christians too. Such productivity is based on the character qualities listed above. As we head into lockdown again today, these qualities are going to be more vital than ever. It is going to take all the perseverance and self-control we can muster!
For Peter, these qualities begin with faith – a simple trust in Jesus – and progress from there through to the ultimate quality of love. In what way do you need to trust God right now?
A list of such qualities may make us feel like failures. Remember the previous verses from the last couple of weeks: “His divine power has given us everything we need to life and godliness”. You are not pursuing these qualities on your own. It is God developing them in you. What qualities might God be going to develop in you during this time? What does it require of you to allow him to do it?
With love and blessing,
