YOU ARE PARTAKERS OF GOD’S DIVINE NATURE!
By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (2 Peter 1:4).
Every Christian is a partaker of God’s divine nature because he is a part and parcel of the body of Jesus Christ in life. That is what made a Christian unique and distinct in life. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he is a partaker of God’s divine nature in life. Being a partaker of God’s divine nature is indeed the will and grace of God for a Christian in life forever.
Jesus Christ made it vividly clear to us in the Scriptures that He is the vine and the Christians are the branches in life. That is why the Bible says in John 15:5, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” Therefore, a Christian is a branch that abides in the Vine of life which is Jesus Christ in life. One thing that is very sure is that the vine and the branches have the same life; therefore, you can never separate a Christian from the life of Christ Jesus. A Christian is a branch that beautifies the body of the Vine in life forever.
That is why Apostle Paul went further to buttress this fact when he said in 1 Corinthians 10:17 thus, “For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.” In fact, whoever abides in Jesus Christ becomes part and parcel of Him and partakes in His divine nature in life. A Christian should take note of the fact that he is a partaker of God’s divine nature in life. The blood of Jesus Christ flows in your vein; therefore, you are not just ordinary in life. Of course, a Christian is the church, the body of Jesus Christ in life. Indeed, a Christian is therefore special and indestructible in life forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to take note of the fact that he is a partaker of God’s divine nature in life forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world (1John 4:17).
