He hath given us exceeding great, and inconceivably precious promises - Both the promises and the things promised, which follow in their due season, that, sustained and encouraged by the promises, we may obtain all that he has promised. That, having escaped the manifold corruption which is in the world - From that fruitful fountain, evil desire. Ye may become partakers of the divine nature - Being renewed in the image of God, and having communion with them, so as to dwell in God and God in you.

Thank God for his promises that are real and true. We should be thankful also that we have a nature change the moment we made Jesus our Lord and Saviour.

 

Susan's comment on 2013-11-26 18:36:47:

Remember that the veil is rent in Christ. When we repent, we are baptized into the body of his death, so that the body of the sins of the flesh might be destroyed. Henceforth we walk not after the flesh but after the spirit. This is a faithful saying. We will all experience this through the spirit, and it is liberating!!

I seek only the truth through him only. I am only a voice with his purpose in mind.

 

Ben Weaver's comment on 2011-01-09 19:47:03:

Wow! V. 4 is a great and precious statement informing us of "exceeding great and precious promises" by which we can participate in the great and precious nature of God. Knowing (experiencing) Jesus our Lord(V.2) is the only way that we have access to the all things that pertain to life and godliness. These priviledges are apparently not endowed directly on believers, but available to those who actively obey in pursueing them. Being in Christ, voluntary humility to degrade ourselves as worthless, seems not to be productive or pleasing to God. Personalizing and actively receiving the promises with thanksgivingseems to God, seems to be God's plan for us. "Without faith it is impossible to please God"(Heb. 11:6). Let's go find the promises.
