I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"GOD'S PROMISES ARE REAL" BY DAVID MCMILLEN
GOD'S PROMISES ARE REAL
THE LORD HAS GIVEN US SO MANY PROMISES IN THE BIBLE AND THERE ARE SO MANY CHRISTIANS THAT DON'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT THEM. PETER TELLS US THAT WE ARE GIVEN "EXCEEDING" GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES AND LOOK WHAT IT DOES FOR US. 2ND PETER 1:3-4 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. DID YOU SEE THAT..... "THROUGH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIM"....AND HOW DO WE GET THAT KNOWLEDGE....THROUGH HIS WORD. I KNOW YOU GET TIRED OF ME HARPING ON READING THE BIBLE BUT YOU CAN SEE WHY.
I LIKE WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT MAKING US PARTAKES OF THE DIVINE NATURE SO WE CAN ESCAPE THE CORRUPTION THAT IS IN THE WORLD THROUGH LUST. JAMES 1 HAS A LOT TO SAY ABOUT LUST IN VERSES 14-15 WHEN IT SAYS "But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. ACCORDING TO STRONG'S CONCORDANCE, THE LUST TRANSLATED HERE MEANS "A LONGING, ESPECIALLY FOR WHAT IS FORBIDDEN".
VERSE 5 OF 2ND PETER 1 GOES ON TO TALKS ABOUT KNOWLEDGE WHEN IT SAYS "And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge". YOU DO HAVE FAITH TO DO THIS AND WHERE DOES FAITH COME FROM..... "HEARING THE WORD OF GOD". ROMANS 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. SO, GET INTO YOUR BIBLE AND BUILD YOUR FAITH SO YOU WILL BE PREPARED TO RECEIVE THOSE "PRECIOUS" PROMISES.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
