Growing in Diligence

Growing. It often is something that we want, but either we plunge ahead, just randomly trying to work this life out, or we sit back, stoically waiting for God to make us perfect so that we can get out there and not screw it up. As we dig into 2 Peter 1/5-7 we find a list of virtues. And at first glance, the doers say "Let's get going!!" And the thinkers, the feelers, they can default to just being overwhelmed. But there is a great balance here. We need to be diligent in our faith - in trusting in the promises of God that we have everything we need for life and godliness. Even if failing-ly moving forward in seeking to be like Him, we are identifying both our kingdom belonging and our need. diligence, peter, grow, jesus, david, seek, father, the will of god, moral excellence, cupcake girls, advent, seaside church, bremerton, self-control, endurance, godliness, hope, knowledge, change, failing, grace, sin, mercy
