For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge. -2 PETER 1:5 (ESV)
PARAPHRASED IN CONTEXT (2 Peter 1:3-5):
Through knowledge of Jesus, we have been granted all things that pertain to life and godliness through his promises s through these promises we may become partakers of the Divine Nature- having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desires. For this very reason make every effort to add to your faith a high moral character that is manifested, thus enriching the lives of others, and to this high moral character add knowledge.
MESSAGE FROM ABBA:
Virtue is one of My Names. For I Am Good. I Am God. And Goodness is My character. Goodness is My name. For I Am Good. I Am God. If you are My child you will look like Me, talk like Me, act like Me. But you must know Me to be able to do so. Incorrect knowledge of Me will cause you to act contrary to My Spirit. Eat of Me. Sup with Me. Abide with Me. Dwell in My Presence. The power to transform you into My Character is inside of you. Draw from Me and be like Me.
