Know the Promiser

Today’s Reading: 2 Peter 1:1-9


2 Peter 1:4 — He has granted to us His precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.


God promises precious promises. My greatest problem is that I do not know Jesus well enough. The more I grow in the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord, the more I will partake of the divine nature and escape the corruption that wants to rule my life.


I was born autonomous from God, desiring to be free from Him, so that I could live according to my own sinful desires. But that was not how God had designed me as a human being to live. I was designed to know God!


I was designed to live my life intimately connected to God, the source of eternal life. I was designed to live my life according to divine truth, which is only found through relationship with God. I was designed by God to receive boundless love from Him that would define me and give my life meaning and purpose.


God has promised me all these things: eternal life, divine truth, and boundless love. These are precious and very great promises made to me so that I can partake of Christ’s divine nature and be free from my sinful desires that corrupt and destroy me.


I must believe the promises and trust the Promiser to fulfill them in my life. As I get to know the Promiser and experience what He has promised, I grow more like Him. More of Jesus and less of me! More of His life, His will, His ways, His thinking, and less of mine. Lord, may Your Spirit govern my soul and set me free from any desire to live apart from You.

“ I grow more like Him. More of Jesus and less of me!”


I attended the evening service last Wednesday, as usual. There were only 4 people. Where has everyone gone?


How can I become more like the Jesus every day, and how can I become smaller and the Lord become bigger in my daily life? I was so disappointed last Wednesday.

I want to be clear about why I come to the church.


More of His life, His will, His ways, His thinking, and less of mine. Lord, please change me!

“내 삶에 예수님이 점점 더 커지고 나는 작아 지면서, 점점 더 그 분을 닮아갑니다.“.


지난 수요일 저녁예배에 참석했다 늘 보통때처럼…

4명 뿐이었다. 다 어디로…
