According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue (2 Peter 1:3).
God the Father gave Jesus Christ His Son (John 3:16) to the world. Jesus Christ is the selfless, sacrificial giver (Isaiah 53) and gave up His own life for the church (Ephesians 5:25; Romans 16:16) which is His precious bride (John 3:29). The salvation of man and ALL the blessings needed by men are in Him (John 1:4, 12; Ephesians 1:3). The life and godliness about which Peter wrote will come as blessings to every precious soul through the knowledge of Him who has called us.
Man’s part is to desire and gain the knowledge of Jesus Christ like a new born babe desires and receives milk to drink (1 Peter 2:2). With desire and diligence (Hebrews 11:6), let us seek to know the One who has given us so much.
