One of the greatest heartaches in the Christian life is the slowness of our change. ~ John Piper
Progress comes slowly. Just as my father marked his by landmarks in our lane, I need some way to know where I am in relation to where I have been. Peter’s second letter offers those landmarks.
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness,and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1: 5 – 8
Thank you, Peter. Though its pace breaks the heart, there is progress. This gives me hope.
What gives you hope?
