TOPIC: ADD TO YOUR FAITH (2)
TEXT: 2 PETER 1:5-11
Today, EVANG. DAVID OFURUM teaches…
Having the qualities listed in our lead Scripture holds three distinct benefits for a Christian:
1. It eliminates barrenness and unfruitfulness (v8)
2. It guarantees you will never fall (v10)
3. It grants access into the abundance of the Kingdom (v11).
So it is not just enough beingvin the faith, you need to add those qualities to your faith to enjoy the aforementioned benefits. Verses 5-7 show that the following qualities are essential additives for the Christian faith:
1. Virtue (Good character, moral excellence)
3. Temperance (Self-control)
5. Godliness (Godlikeness)
6. Brotherly kindness
7. Charity (Love).
If you must grow in the faith, then these additives are inevitable. They are a formidable formula for supernatural increase.
