2Peter 1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6 And to knowledge temperance;


In our studies here in 2Peter 1, we have learned that we must add to our faith virtue and to virtue, knowledge. Verse 6 goes further into our gain and teaches us to add to this knowledge, temperance. This word simply means self-control. So many Christians are out of control. If we do not take time daily to allow the Word to purge us then we soon will find our life out of control. Without a daily spiritual cleansing our spiritual life will wander off course quickly. Then soon our job will be out of control, then our home life will be out of control. And among all this chaos our spiritual life will be spinning out of control. We could go on and on naming off areas in our life that will become out of control if we do not practice selfcontrol. My friend, the flesh has to be forced to study the Word. The flesh has to be forced to pray. The flesh has to be forced to attend Church. The flesh will take over if we do not practice selfcontrol. A Christian whose spiritual life is out of control will have a life of offense. They will be offended at most everything that is spiritual. They will regularly be offended at their Pastor, their teachers, and any other authority in their life. Friend, if we push against the authorities in our life then we will soon find our life out of control pushing against God and His will. This pertains to worldly authority as well as spiritual authority. Self-control is a vital ingredient we must exercise in order to stay spiritually in fellowship with the Lord. So, how do we keep self-control? This vital power only comes through engulfing our selves in the Word. By this committed daily soaking in the Word we will be influenced by the truth and the Holy Ghost. The Spirit of God speaks to us the needs of life as we study the Word. He uses His Word to teach us and guide us through this life here on earth. My friend, we must practice self-control. Amen.

2Peter 1:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience;


Our study here in 2Peter 1 has been one of great help from the Lord. Each of these ingredients He gives us here are added to each other. When we add these to our faith we must add them in the order they are given. The Lord commands that we add these to our faith. We are told to diligently seek these attributes. Add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience. Patience is an important character trait. It is important to the successful Christian life. Here in our verse the word patience means to have cheerful endurance and constancy. There are many things in this life that we do not like or wish to have happen to us or around us. But many of these things are needful for our life to be in God’s will. We must endure troubles and trials. It is part of this life. Jesus said to expect it. Many Christians do not accept these times very Christian-like. Some handle trouble well while others act out drama shows. No one likes trouble, but life goes on. We must keep in mind that our God is sovereign and sovereignly in control. Nothing happens without His permission. Every load is weighed before it is allowed into our realm. Notice again the meaning of our word “patience”. It means cheerful endurance. Dear friend we must learn to grin and bear it. If you are saved, you are promised eternal life in a glorious place called Heaven. Earthly life is temporary and short. We must make the best of it for His glory. Our word also means constancy. Oh how we need more of this attribute. We have so many Christians who are in and out, on and off and around and around. Strive to be faithful. Strive to be constant and committed. Stop letting the worldly society decide how faithful you are. Be patient. Have endurance and be constant. And we must do this with a cheerful spirit. Amen! We have added another vital ingredient to our faith this week.

2Peter 1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;


As we study these attributes that we must add to our faith, we have found a powerful guide for our Christian life in Jesus. All these ingredients added in order make a sweet smelling savour unto the Lord. We have diligently added to our faith virtue and knowledge and temperance and then patience. Today we add godliness. Godliness simply means to be godly and holy. So many Christians today are more ungodly than godly. Now obviously the Lord does not intend on us living a miserable lifestyle. There is a difference in separation and isolation. Isolation helps no one. What good are we for the cause of Christ if we isolate our self and refuse to participate in this life? On the other hand the Word teaches us to be separated from sin. The Christian is not to indulge in worldliness. I never cease to be amazed at how different races of people strive to be like another race. They go to great extents to look like and act like another race. I don’t get it! Why not be who God made you to be? Sometimes Christians do the same thing. We are born again children of God. We are named Christians because we are Christ-like. So why do we go to great extents to look and act like a sinner?? We will push the limits on our dress attire to look more like the sinner. We will push the limits in our standards in order to be accepted into the society of those that are ungodly. I don’t get! We are saved and highly favored of the King. We are adopted into the royal family of God. We have a promised home in Glory. Why in the world do we Christians strive to act like sinners?? We are children of God and we should act, look and sound like it. A sinner should be around us no more than five minutes and know that there is something definitely different about us. We don’t have to tell everyone we are a Christian. We don’t have to carry a picket sign stating what we are. All we have to do is be godly. An important attribute to add to our faith is godliness. Amen and Amen.

2Peter 1:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness;


We must add to our faith “brotherly kindness”. As the bride of Christ, the born again, the sons of God and the children of the King we are considered brothers and sisters in Christ. This is why we refer to one another as brother or sister. It is just a title of respect to one another. It is not a sin if we do not use this sir name, but it is out of respect for one another and it is a clarification of position in Christ. We refer to our elders as sir and mam therefore we refer to the saved as brother and sister. Respect is a rare thing in our day. Very few parents are teaching their children to have respect. My dear friend, teach your kids and grandkids to have respect for others. Make it a priority that they use mam and sir. We ourselves should strive to have respect for others as a witness to the children. I have noticed in the past few years that disrespect has reached a low level among the younger generation. A while back I overheard a conversation between a teenager and their Dad. This teen talked in a very disrespectful tone and commenced to tell her Dad what she was and was not going to do. She even referred to him by first name. Instead of calling him Dad or Daddy she called him by name. To be honest, I was about ready to step into something that was none of my business and make it my business. Between you and me I must say that child needed a trip out behind the wood shed for a come to Jesus meeting! Respect must be taught. Whatever happened to opening the door for an elder, or giving up your seat for a lady, or even allowing the ladies to go first? We must exercise respect. Our verse commands us to add brotherly kindness to our faith. Be kind to someone today. Call someone and just thank them for being faithful to the Lord. Many times we are down and just need someone to encourage us to go on. Determine to be kind and respectful today. Teach your kids to do the same. Amen.

2Peter 1:7 …and to brotherly kindness charity.


This study on “adding to our faith” has turned into a true blessing. Today we add the seventh ingredient, charity. Charity means to love. Now let’s keep in mind that these characteristics that we are commanded to add to our faith are pertaining to the born again child of God. Why? Because a lost person has no faith! True godly love can only exist in those who are saved. Actually only the saved know the power of love. It is the love of God that offers us salvation in the first place. “For God so loved”. God Himself is the root of all true love. 1John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. You see, without God within us we do not have the ability to love. God is love. Without God there is no true love. Only God can truly love a murderer. Only God can love a thief and a robber. Only God can love the liar. It is God that has the ability to love the abuser. Only God can love the sinner! You see my friend, love is an elite power that is empowered only by God Himself. If we love anything or anybody it is the God within us that is doing the loving! The flesh seeks sin but the God driven spirit of man seeks love. Love is a power that cannot be explained with the words of man. It is a God power. Love is amazing! To have the power of love between brothers and sisters in Christ is absolutely amazing! That bond between the truly saved is mind blowing. Pause and think on this for a moment. The heart felt love we have for our companions in Christ is a deep power that cannot be utterly explained. But oh what peace and satisfaction it gives us. Love… is of God. 1John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Glory Hallelujah!!! The love of God. We must exercise this love that He added. Amen.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
