Once you’ve surrender your life to Christ, it is so important to grow in your relationship with Him. In the book of Second Peter in the Bible, he tells us that we’ve been given “everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of Him…” (2 Peter 1:3), and he goes on to encourage us to, “make every effort to add to your faith…” (v. 5). Peter tells us that this is so important because, “…if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.” (v. 8-9)
The Bible is the primary way God speaks to us today. Its message is inspired, and brings needed hope, encouragement and correction to our lives (2 Tim. 3:16). Download a free Bible to your computer, iPad, kindle or mobile device and read it or listen to it daily. Meditating on God’s Word brings His blessing (Joshua 1:8). For a list of all the benefits of God’s word see Psalm 19 and 119.
