God’s Call and Choice

3God's divine power has given us everything we need to live a truly religious life through our knowledge of the one who called us to share in his own glory and goodness.G5613G846G2304G1411G1433G2254G3956G4314G2222G2532G2150G1223G1922G2564G2248G1223G1391G2532G703 4In this way he has given us the very great and precious gifts he promised, so that by means of these gifts you may escape from the destructive lust that is in the world, and may come to share the divine nature.G1223G3739G1433G2254G3176G2532G5093G1862G2443G1223G5130G1096G2844G2304G5449G668G5356G1722G2889G1722G1939 5For this very reason do your best to add goodness to your faith; to your goodness add knowledge;G2532G1161G846G5124G3923G3956G4710G2023G1722G5216G4102G703G1161G1722G703G1108 6to your knowledge add self-control; to your self-control add endurance; to your endurance add godliness;G1161G1722G1108G1466G1161G1722G1466G5281G1161G1722G5281G2150 7to your godliness add Christian affection; and to your Christian affection add love.G1161G1722G2150G5360G1161G1722G5360G26 8These are the qualities you need, and if you have them in abundance, they will make you active and effective in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.G1063G5023G5225G5213G2532G4121G2525G3756G692G3761G175G1519G1922G2257G2962G2424G5547 9But if you do not have them, you are so shortsighted that you cannot see and have forgotten that you have been purified from your past sins.G1063G3739G3361G3918G5023G2076G5185G3467G3024G2983G2512G846G3819G266 10So then, my friends, try even harder to make God's call and his choice of you a permanent experience; if you do so, you will never abandon your faith.G1352G3123G80G4704G4160G5216G2821G2532G1589G949G1063G4160G5023G4218G4417G3364G4218G4417 11In this way you will be given the full right to enter the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.G1063G3779G1529G2023G5213G4146G1519G166G932G2257G2962G2532G4990G2424G5547 12And so I will always remind you of these matters, even though you already know them and are firmly grounded in the truth you have received.G1352G272G3756G272G5279G5209G104G5279G4012G5130G2539G1492G2532G4741G1722G3918G225 13I think it only right for me to stir up your memory of these matters as long as I am still alive.G1161G2233G1342G1909G3745G1510G1722G5129G4638G1326G5209G1326G1722G5280 14I know that I shall soon put off this mortal body, as our Lord Jesus Christ plainly told me.G1492G3754G5031G2076G595G3450G4638G2532G2531G2257G2962G2424G5547G1213G3427 15I will do my best, then, to provide a way for you to remember these matters at all times after my death.G1161G2532G4704G5209G2192G3326G1699G1841G4160G5130G1539G3420

Eyewitnesses of Christ’s Glory

16We have not depended on made-up stories in making known to you the mighty coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. With our own eyes we saw his greatness.G1063G1811G3756G1811G4679G3454G1107G5213G1411G2532G3952G2257G2962G2424G5547G235G1096G2030G1565G3168 17We were there when he was given honor and glory by God the Father, when the voice came to him from the Supreme Glory, saying, "This is my own dear Son, with whom I am pleased!"G1063G2983G3844G2316G3962G5092G2532G1391G5342G5107G5456G846G5259G3169G1391G3778G2076G3450G27G5207G1519G3739G1473G2106 18We ourselves heard this voice coming from heaven, when we were with him on the holy mountain.G2532G5026G5456G5342G1537G3772G2249G191G5607G4862G846G1722G40G3735 19So we are even more confident of the message proclaimed by the prophets. You will do well to pay attention to it, because it is like a lamp shining in a dark place until the Day dawns and the light of the morning star shines in your hearts.G2192G2532G949G3056G4397G3739G4160G2573G4337G5613G3088G5316G1722G850G5117G2193G3739G2250G1306G2532G5459G393G1722G5216G2588 20Above all else, however, remember that none of us can explain by ourselves a prophecy in the Scriptures.G1097G5124G4412G3754G3756G3956G4394G1124G1096G2398G1955 21For no prophetic message ever came just from the human will, but people were under the control of the Holy Spirit as they spoke the message that came from God.G1063G4394G5342G3756G4218G2307G444G235G40G444G2316G2980G5342G5259G40G4151
