Today I read this comforting, empowering, and peace-giving verse in 2 Peter 1:3:
“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.”
Everything we need! We have everything we need! Right now!
To know the truth of this statement and the scope of it challenges my understanding.
Yet, I believe it. I have everything I need because Jesus is here.
I think about the little preposition “through” because the means of us having everything we need is, quite simply, our knowledge of Jesus. We call to mind all we know of what Jesus offers our souls–that peace, power, righteousness, and hope.
We know it, and it’s ours.
