Only God’s nature is the escape from our capacity for Sin. Every human being is born with failure mechanism. We have capacity to self destruct, that is why they don’t need to take us to a classroom to teach us how to tell lies. The lies just begin to come out with time. It is the nature. But gratefully, when we receive forgiveness from God and accept Jesus, He removes the nature of sin and puts his nature in there and it says here that we cheer in God in that nature and the passage also said that God has given us all things that we need to excel through his promises.
This is how it works in God’s system and because of His glory and excellence he has given us great and precious promises and these promises are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature.
So what does this imply? The more you read and meditate on God’s word, the more you know him and the more you become like Him and you are able to function like Him. I like the way it works. 2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT. When God opens your eyes, He removes the veil from your eyes. When you really see him or let me put it these way, you begin to know him by revelation. What you see is Glory. Glory is beauty, it’s Splendor, it’s brightness, it’s magnificent, it’s riches, it says when we read the bible with open eyes through the help of the Holy Spirit we see who he is but remember he said let us make man in our own image after our own likeness so this is it, the more you know God, the more you know who you are. So let me finish it, then we all, who with unveiled faces behold the Lord’s Glory are being transformed into his image with ever increasing glory which comes from the Lord who is the saint. Amazing!
You know what that does, it creates a hunger in you for improvements. Hunger for progress. There is no human being that will really know God and be satisfied with the status quo. Never satisfied with mediocrity or poor quality.
The more you know God, the more you are hungry for improvements so that put you in the pursuit for excellence Its amazing! I read Gen 1, it said God created the heavens and he created me in his image. I said hold it! if God is a creator, then I, I am a creator.
And I look at what happens in verse 2. ….And the earth was without form and void ….and God said let there be light.
He did not stay with the darkness. He did not accept it as normal if that’s God then that’s me. knowing God creates and puts us in the pursuit for excellence.
