His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence -- 2 Peter 1:3 (ESV) The machine of marketing is constantly running in our culture. Do you need more or something that’s bigger, faster, cooler, better, or cleaner? Then get, get, get. What we need and what we want becomes conflated. And after a while an expectation is built into us that drives us. Contentment is almost impossible to find. This kind of marketing is not exclusive to things. Go to a Christianbookstore. Your spiritual life is in need of an upgrade as well. If you do this study or read this book or have this new experience, then you can climb that spiritual mountain and overcome any negatives. Is that how the Christian life works? This week we take a look at our Christian growth through the lens of 2 Peter. We want to examine what the believer already possesses. Because, when we understand this, it produces in us contentment and gratitude which moves us even closer toward Christ. Do you have it?
