2 Peter 1:5-8
"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 brother affection with love. For if these qualities are your and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." ESV
We wonder sometimes why our spiritual lives are dull and non-productive. Somewhere along the line we have tapered off those qualities of Christ that are critical to our spiritual growth. A regular check up of our spiritual faith asking the Lord to search our hearts will keep us from getting off track. And, we will find all these things active and increasing in our lives.
Lord, search our hearts and reveal to us if we have drifted away from these things that will insure our spiritual growth. Our desire is to be more like You. In Your omnipotent name we pray, Amen.
