Introduction:

I.   Promise and fulfillment affect how we understand time.

 

II.  We grow in God-likeness through His promises. 2 Peter1:4a.

 

III. We are to be those who "participate in the divine nature." 2 Peter 1:4b.

 

IV.  Application:

           1. Read, hear, study and be taught the Bible.

           2.  Learn from and build your own history of what God has done in your life.

           3.  Learn from God's faithfulness in thelives of others.

           4.  Pray

 

Questions for reflection:

  • 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?
  • In what ways has God proven faithful in fulfilling promises in your past?
