Add These To You

Download Today's Audio ☞
2 Peter 1:8 (NET)
For if these things are really yours and are continually increasing, they will keep you from becoming ineffective and unproductive in your pursuit of knowing our Lord Jesus Christ more intimately 

Judith received the Lord’s salvation in an inter-denominational youth camp meeting. That day, the preacher preached on escaping the wrath to come, explaining that the only way of escape was Jesus, she responded to the altar call after the sermon and got born again. She was full of the joy of the Holy Spirit and was eager to share her faith with all that cared to listen, one of them was Cathy.

Three years later Cathy ran into Judith in the compulsory National Youth Service Corps orientation camp in Lagos Nigeria. She was so excited the first day she caught a glimpse of Judith and determined that she was going to meet her. However, when they finally got to meet, Cathy’s enthusiasm was greatly doused as the meeting didn’t turn out to be what she expected.

She had expected to meet a Judith that was full of the joy and fire of the Holy Spirit, but instead, she met a Judith that was a barely-get-along-by Christian. It bothered her for long and she took it up in prayers. After praying sufficiently, she approached Judith again, this time she pointed out to Judith how Judith was influential in her getting saved and on fire for Jesus. She enquired to know what happened that put out all the light that she once exuded.

After a long discussion, she discovered that much of the discouragement Judith was having was as a result of the failures and lack of victories Judith had experience both in the areas of her health, sexual purity, relationships, and even finances. And these were largely a result of her not taking to heart the instructions of the scriptures and building her faith thereby. She pointed Judith to 2 Peter 1:4-10 encouraging her that giving all diligence, she must add to her faith virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love.

Go into today determined to give all diligence in adding these things to you.

Prayer: Lord, I have heard your word for me today. Please help me from today to never have a better yesterday in my walk with you. Help me to continually add to my faith and shine ever brighter for you in this dark world. Amen.
