Confirm Your Calling and Election

3His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,G5613G846G2304G1411G1433G2254G3956G4314G2222G2532G2150G1223G1922G2564G2248G1223G1391G2532G703 4by which 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.G1223G3739G1433G2254G3176G2532G5093G1862G2443G1223G5130G1096G2844G2304G5449G668G5356G1722G2889G1722G1939 5For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge,G2532G1161G846G5124G3923G3956G4710G2023G1722G5216G4102G703G1161G1722G703G1108 6and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness,G1161G1722G1108G1466G1161G1722G1466G5281G1161G1722G5281G2150 7and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.G1161G1722G2150G5360G1161G1722G5360G26 8For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.G1063G5023G5225G5213G2532G4121G2525G3756G692G3761G175G1519G1922G2257G2962G2424G5547 9For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins.G1063G3739G3361G3918G5023G2076G5185G3467G3024G2983G2512G846G3819G266 10Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to make your calling and election sure, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall.G1352G3123G80G4704G4160G5216G2821G2532G1589G949G1063G4160G5023G4218G4417G3364G4218G4417 11For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.G1063G3779G1529G2023G5213G4146G1519G166G932G2257G2962G2532G4990G2424G5547 12Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have.G1352G272G3756G272G5279G5209G104G5279G4012G5130G2539G1492G2532G4741G1722G3918G225 13I think it right, as long as I am in this body, to stir you up by way of reminder,G1161G2233G1342G1909G3745G1510G1722G5129G4638G1326G5209G1326G1722G5280 14since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me.G1492G3754G5031G2076G595G3450G4638G2532G2531G2257G2962G2424G5547G1213G3427 15And I will make every effort so that after my departure you may be able at any time to recall these things.G1161G2532G4704G5209G2192G3326G1699G1841G4160G5130G1539G3420

Christ’s Glory and the Prophetic Word

16For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.G1063G1811G3756G1811G4679G3454G1107G5213G1411G2532G3952G2257G2962G2424G5547G235G1096G2030G1565G3168 17For when he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased,"G1063G2983G3844G2316G3962G5092G2532G1391G5342G5107G5456G846G5259G3169G1391G3778G2076G3450G27G5207G1519G3739G1473G2106 18we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain.G2532G5026G5456G5342G1537G3772G2249G191G5607G4862G846G1722G40G3735 19And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts,G2192G2532G949G3056G4397G3739G4160G2573G4337G5613G3088G5316G1722G850G5117G2193G3739G2250G1306G2532G5459G393G1722G5216G2588 20knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation.G1097G5124G4412G3754G3756G3956G4394G1124G1096G2398G1955 21For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.G1063G4394G5342G3756G4218G2307G444G235G40G444G2316G2980G5342G5259G40G4151
