The Apostle Peter says that God's divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness. This is the key - the foundation - to the living out of our lives in Christ. Without living from the foundation that God has already supplied us with everything, many try to live their Christian lives from their own strength and efforts.

Peter talks about "adding" to our faith things such as virtue, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness and love. Are these things that we can come up with on our own? This week we talk about how these things are already a part of who we are in Christ. They are already supplied to us, as they are part of the very nature of God that is in us. We're "partakers of the divine nature," not because we struggle and strive to produce any of these things on our own, but because God has already supplied us with these things.

Here's this week's short GIG-Bite, a quick sample of this week's program.
