MORNINGTIME 2283
 
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, {Love). 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. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 2 Peter 1:5-9. If you are Growing, Practicing, and Living these attributes, Faith, Virtue , Knowledge, Temperance, Patience, Godliness, Brotherly Kindness, and Charity, you are seriously growing in CHRISTLIKENESS, with much Knowledge and Understanding of the Ways, Plans, and Purposes of Christ. As you Grow and Live in these things, Satan won't be able to pull the wool over your eyes, fool you, or make you stumble and fall. Again, with these attributes, or to say it another way, as you stand With, In, and Through Christ, YOU WON'T FALL FOR ANYTHING Satan tries to throw at you. Self-deception, deception, love of money, things, and stuff, lusts of things and people will be no problem. Christ will be Living THROUGH you and you can rest assured HE'LL TAKE CARE OF HIS OWN and all they need to keep them on the straight and narrow. When you let Christ Shine in and through you, there will be no darkness, no place for Satan to hide, even no satanic influence to affect, effect, or infect you. All these good attributes are yours as you grow in Christ. Do you ever reach Perfection on this side? Maybe not, but how close DO you want to come to it? King David had a Perfect Heart towards the Lord, so at least THAT is attainable. Maybe More. The Lord Knows. Have you reached your full Potential In Christ yet? No? Don't be discourages about ANYTHING. Keep working on it, and Greatly, Be Blessed.
