Life and Godliness

September 1, 2019 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: 2 Peter

Scripture: 2 Peter 1:3–1:4

Life and Godliness
2 Peter 1:3-4
September 1, 2019




I.    God has given us everything we need for life and godliness. 2 Peter 1:3a, 4b.



II.   We grow in life and godliness through our saving knowledge of Him. 2 Peter 1:3b.



III.  We grow in God-likeness through His promises. 2 Peter 1:4a.



Questions for reflection:

  • What is 'life' and 'godliness'? What does Peter mean by the 'divine nature'? Why
    should we eminently desire to grow in these things?

  • What does Peter mean by 'knowledge of Him' and how do we grow in this knowledge?
  • What are some of the promises that have encouraged God's saints in previous ages? What are the promises you have found most helpful in your own life?
