Verse of the Day, August 13, 2020
2 Peter 1:5-7 KJV “And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;  And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;  And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.”
The children of Israel and the strangers who join themselves to them are given exceedingly great and precious promises. They are given these by the FATHER through our LORD, the CHRIST.
We can take part in the divine nature escaping the corruption in this world, which is provided through lust. To do this, we must give or continue to give all diligence to our faith, virtue, knowledge, and temperance.
From temperance, we strengthen our patience and godliness, to brotherly kindness, and ultimately, charity. These things make us abound so we are not barren and unfruitful in the knowledge of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Praise ye the LORD!

2 Peter 1 King James Version
2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
3 According 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:
4 Whereby 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.
5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8 For 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.
9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.
