TEXT: 2 PETER 1:3-11
MEMORY VERSE: “And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity” (2 PETER 1:5-7).
Rafael Parera is a Spanish professional tennis player currently ranked world No. 2 in men's singles tennis by the Association of Tennis Professionals as at the time of this write up. According to a source, as a top ranking player, he never leaves anything to chance. He plays as if he is just a qualifier.
In fact, he gets more passionate with every tournament instead of feeling like he deserves to win or is entitled to win. The intensity with which he plays at every point is almost unmatched. He never relents. For believers, there is no resting point in this world because believers are pilgrims on a journey.
According to Albert Einstein, "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving." There is no spiritual level an individual can attain and feel that there is nothing else to acquire.
The moment anyone thinks he has arrived, everything starts to crumble. When someone is not making progress, there will be retrogression. We can add more faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, etc., to our lives to remain God's favourites.
QUOTE: There is no resting point in this world.
CHALLENGE: Christian virtues give spiritual strength and stability.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to continue to grow in grace.
