By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.2 Peter 1:3
A Godly Life
We have been given everything we need to be able to lead a godly life. There are no expectations other than following Christ. When we came to know Him as Savior, He gave us everything we needed through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives us what we need to live a life that pleases the Lord.
The Holy Spirit teaches and guides us through the Word of God. When we read the Bible, the Holy Spirit interprets His words and instructs us in the way we should live. So there is nothing we need to add to this Christian life to make it easier to follow Him. We do not need self-help books or the advice of others; we only need Him. Can the words of others help us, sure! We need to always go to Him first.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for the Holy Spirit. May I allow Him to lead and guide me to be more like you. Amen.
