Let’s Get to Work

“His divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” (2 Peter 1:3).

His divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness.

Right now. Even in the midst of the global pandemic. Even in the midst of social distancing. Even for moments just like now, God has given us everything needed for life and godliness.

The plan works when you work the plan.

Just because God has given us everything needed for life and godliness doesn’t necessarily mean that you and I are growing and thriving in life and godliness. You see, we have to put into practice and use what God has given to us. And unless we put into practice and use what God has given to us, nothing changes.

Just because someone has the desire to get healthier and joins a gym and hires a fitness coach to help them get fit doesn’t necessarily mean they get healthier and fit. The only way a person will get healthier and fit is if they work the plan that the fitness coach outlines for them. The plan is there. The plan works. But the person has to work the plan in order for the plan to work.

God has given us everything we need in his word for life and godliness. But the only way this plan works is when we work God’s plan.

Here’s what that means. The basics of God’s growth plan for godliness includes:

  • Daily prayer and daily reading of God’s word
  • Weekly participation in worship
  • Working out our faith with a small group of believers

The plan works when you work the plan. The word of God is clear: God has given us everything needed for life and godliness. Now it’s up to you and me to do our part.

Let’s get to work!
