2 Peter 1:1-10

There are many scriptures that lead us to think about how God quenches our thirst, eases our fears, satisfies all our needs, and makes us new. 2 Peter 1:3 reminds us that because of Jesus’ sacrifice, we have already received all we need to live a godly life.

Some Christians think they have to follow every rule and keep every law on their own. They hope to satisfy God in their own strength. Yet Peter tells us, “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life.” The legalism we put on ourselves is unnecessary, because of God’s provision through Jesus.

Lean back and relax; God has given you joy and freedom. Don’t fret over your schedule; give it to Jesus. He wants us to have life—abundant life—the most joyous part of being a Christian. We need not try to do everything in our own strength. Let Him give you abundant life. Trust in Him and don’t try to lean on your own abilities. Accept His abundant gift.
