2 Peter 1:8-9, “For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins.”

Now those things that are Found can only Abound so that they will make us fruitful for our Lord. How do we become fruitful? Only by submitting to God and allowing him to mold us into what he wants our lives to become. Hard to do as he has given each of us a will. But once we relinquish our will to him then truly, he can, and will, work. And oh, how he works! The Almighty God that formed our planet, created every human both past and present, and will one day return in glory wants to actually walk with us daily. He wants to guide our footsteps, hold our hands, and walk us through this life. Plus be there at every turn thus creating a relationship with his handiwork. Truly a loving God would be that interested in this speck of a human. Truly an awesome God would be that interested in each speck he creates.

Grace and peace, James
