Do We Know What Christlikeness Looks Like? (2 Peter 1:1-8)Jim Berg, June 14, 2012
Part of the FBFI National Fellowship series, preached at a FBFI Conference service
Dr. Berg's message focuses on the Essential Virtues of 2 Pt 1.1-8. In this portrait of Christian maturity we see how God works in our lives to make us whole-hearted, brave-hearted and tender-hearted disciples.
2 Peter 1:1-8
1Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ: 2Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (KJV)
