In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge…2 Peter 1:5
Live Out Your Faith
The word supplement means, “: something that completes or makes an addition,” according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary. So when this verse says to supplement your faith with oral excellence and knowledge, it means to add it to what God has already done. God’s promises are something HE does. Supplementing your faith is what YOU do. So when you spend time in the Word, studying and gaining knowledge, and then you live that out in your everyday life with moral excellence, you are doing exactly what this verse says to do!
Take some time to really ponder and pray about how you can better live out your faith according to His promises!
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for your promises of eternal life. May I continue to be hungry for the Word and living out my faith everyday. Amen.
