Everything We Need
Not much time for expiatin' today, so let me just point you to three stirring posts from John at Scotwise: the theme is, We Have Everything We Need to Lead a Godly Life, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. It all comes down to this:
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence . . . 2 Peter 1:3Do we really believe it? Or are we looking for "other things" than those that pertain to life and godliness? As Jim Elliot said: "God deliver me from the dread asbestos of 'other things.'"
