The title of my devotion this Friday morning is “Grow In Grace,” 2 Peter, 3:18, “…not in grace only, but in all grace. Grow in that root-Grace, faith. Believe that promises more firmly than you have done. Let faith increase in fullness, constancy, simplicity. Grow also in love. Ask that more love my become extended, more intense, more practical, influencing every thought, word, and deed. Grow, likewise in humility. Seek to lie very low, and know more of your nothingness. As you grow downward in humility, seek also to grow upward – having nearer approaches to God in prayer and more intimate fellowship with Jesus. May God the Holy Spirit enable you to “grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior.” He who grows in knowledge refuses to be blessed. To know him is “eternal life,” and to advance in the knowledge of him is to increase in happiness.
I choose to study his Holy Word. I chose to walk and talk with the Savior daily. I ask, in the Holy name of our Heavenly Father, to help me to seek HIS will for my life. I want simply to be a follower of Jesus. I want to share that love of Jesus, if not in word, but in deed. I cannot do it in my own power. Therefore, I put on the whole armor of God and ask him to reveal his will for me this day. In Jesus, in name, I pray. Amen.
