Thought of the Day !!

As we know Jesus better, his divine power gives us everything we need for living a godly life.
                                                                                 2 Peter 1:3 (NLT)
Knowing Jesus better means growing in our relationship with him.  We do that through finding out more about him and speaking to him constantly, while allowing him to speak back. 
When we do this, His divine power (being used through God's Holy Spirit) enables us to do things we couldn't do before we grew in this relationship.  For instance, before I had a strong relationship with Jesus, I was a follower.  In high school I would do just about anything to be accepted by others, even if it was something bad.  But now, I know I am accepted by my Lord and Savior and do not feel as though I have to do anything to be accepted by others.  And this has led to me living a more godly life.
This is merely one example of how the divine power of God gives us everything we need for living a godly life.  Jesus knows each and every one of us and sees where there are things in our lives that we can battle on our own, but will never win.  For the temptation to do them is too strong.  If we will only seek the help of our Savior, his divine power is enough to defeat whatever the devil throws at us.  It may not be all at once, but as your relationship grows, so will your ability to fight sin. 

In the love of Christ,
