“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity.”
2 Peter 3:18
We must grow in Christ or we lose out on grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus. We need to seek Him and seek forgiveness and peace with God. As we walk in our Christian lives we become more like Him and our spiritual knowledge increases. We keep growing right to the end of our lives.
God will keep us in His grace. We will fall and fail and others will speak against us, but we keep trusting that God will work all troubles according to His purposes. He can change any situation and any person. He can renew all things and sustain us whatever our state. When we fall, there is forgiveness and peace, and the strength to bear our trouble. When we get into deep water, He will send help and give us peace. When family and friend forsake us, His presence more than compensates for the loss.
Giving glory to God for what He has done for us and obeying Him is our top priority. It flows from a grateful heart. Whatever we have experienced, we trust Him to keep us in His love and to know His grace in our lives.
