Given All Things

February 10, 2016

1 Peter 1:2-4

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Good Morning Men.

This morning the Lord pressed a portion of this passage on my heart. There is so much treasure within these three verses, however let me focus on one piece.

…has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness…

Men, anywhere you feel lack, want, or desire that is bringing you down; please know these are not God’s desire.

This verse clearly tells us, right were we are we have all things for a life that is full, complete and portrays the glory of God.

The knowledge of God is what draws us to Him. This is from a David Guzik commentary:

‘ According to Blum, the ancient Greek word knowledge doesn’t refer to a casual acquaintance. It means an exact, complete, and thorough knowledge. ‘

We should have no excuses, He has given us all we need. 

Not enough money? He gave you all you need right now.

Not enough time? He gave us all 24 hours.

Not enough joy? He gave you His Word filled with promises, and the promise of eternal life.

Keep pressing in to the Lord men.
