The Promises of God Give Us the Life of God

We know that one of Jesus’ greatest emphasis was abundant, eternal life.

How Do We Receive Eternal, Abundant Life?

2 Peter 1:3–4 gives some of the clearest, best insights on how God gives us abundant life. Let’s read it and then break it down into chewable bites.

  1. We become partakers of God’s nature (abundant, eternal life) by God’s promises. God’s word carries His life and power, His seed, so when we receive His words, His promises, His nature is sown into us.
  1. We receive the divine nature through God’s promises.
  2. In the spiritual dimension we already have everything we need.
  3. It all comes through Jesus.
  4. Seeing is key to receiving.
  5. God wants us to receive.
  6. We receive by some expression of diligent faith in God’s timing.
