Self-Control and Endurance Lead to Godliness!
“But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor fruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 1:5-8, NKJV)
Genuine faith produces moral goodness, but only if Christians will apply determination and effort. Genuine believers always want to increase in their knowledge of God, in turn, this will teach them self-control and endurance that lead to godliness. The more believers know God they will learn to love others.
May we seek these qualities so we can be more useful to our communities and above all to God, and not fall again to sin from which we were saved.
