2 Pet. 1:10
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall [KJV]


It is not the will of God that you should be on-and-off in your walk with God. Once you have been saved and washed in the blood of Christ Jesus; renouncing the old nature of sinful life, God desires and has equipped you with grace to be stable and strong in your new life. More so, we are encouraged to make our calling sure by constantly adding certain 'supplements' to our faith.

First on the list is Virtue. Virtue means 'goodness' 'moral excellence' or 'good character'. Let it be said of you the believer; 'he/she is a good person'.

Next is Knowledge. The believer is likened to a king and priest (see Rev. 5:10). The king and especially the priest are custodians of knowledge (see Prov. 31:4-5; Mal 2:7). We as believers should seek, retain and dispense true knowledge based on the Word of God.

Temperance is the third 'supplement' to our faith. It means self-control, discipline, restraint and moderation. As believers, we should be controlled by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit-controlled person will enjoy stability in life (see Rom. 8:6).

We shall consider the other 'supplements' next time. Until then, go and live the stable Christian life in Jesus' name. Amen.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, work on my heart. Make me a good person indeed. Help me to know You more. Let Your Holy Spirit control all my affairs. Amen.
