Precious and Miraculous Promises

20 07 2010

We are in the final blog of a series called seven precious things found in 1st and 2nd Peter. Last time we looked at our precious and marvelous Faith and God’s plan and purposes for our lives. Today we are looking at, our precious and marvelous Promises.


“By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.”    2 Peter 1:3 – 4

          Peter tells us God has given us everything we need for living a godly life, by God’s marvelous glory and excellence. God has given us great and precious promises, allowing us to share in his divine nature giving us freedom to escape our own human desires which corrupt our world.


          So what do God’s promises have to do with His plans and purposes for us? We begin with what are these promises? The greatest of these promises are God’s love which comes to us in the divine presence of Christ, dying for the forgiveness of every sin of the world. Without this we would not be able to walk out any of the plans and purposes of God.


          Second promise is the establishment of eternal relationship with the Father which begins when we accept Christ (note the tearing of the veil between the holies and the holy of holies upon Christ’s death) and finally a third promise as we allow the Holy Spirit to live and work in our lives. These are three of the many promises God established for us.


          These three promises of God have brought me so much peace and joy giving me both a hunger and a freedom to walk out all the plans and purposes of God. This blog would not have been established if it weren’t for these promises of God.
