Growing in the Lord

2 Pet 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

1 Jn 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

Jesus Christ was God in the flesh, living on earth, and dying on a cross to save sinners like me and to give all who choose Him as Savior eternal life.

Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

Doesn't matter how "good" we are, we have sinned and we need Jesus as our Savior.

2 Cor 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold all things are new.

He will make us brand new when we accept Him as Savior!

Eph 1:6 To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved.

When we accept Him, He makes us accepted.

2 Cor 12:9 And He said unto me, My grace is sufficent for thee; for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

His grace is enough no matter how I feel today, or what I am facing today. I don't know about you, but the way I feel physically today, this encourages me alot.

Lk 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

Just as Jesus increased in wisdom we need to also. The way to do that is to study His word and have an open heart so that He can help us to grow in His wisdom and grace.
