“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.” 2 Peter 3:18 (NIV)
God does not ask that we grow in a spiritual intellectualism, but in a personal experience of Calvary’s forgiveness. The greater our need for Christ’s grace, the greater our knowledge of Christ’s work of redemption for mankind. We do not study the Bible to be wiser for debate, but to grow closer in our personal relationship with our Lord God Jesus Christ.
We ought to have a growing deeper knowledge of the things of God, but along with that is our need to grow deeper in our relationship with Him and the first hand experience that can only come by investing time in communion together.
Let’s pray today that we may find satisfaction in Calvary and growing in His grace.
