LESSON 9:Bible Messages on Faith conít


ADD TO YOUR FAITH 2 Peter 1:5‑11


In this passage is given some critical information on our journey of faith. Add to your faith, this is an instruction to go beyond faith. These scriptures also tell us that faith alone is not enough to stand, (for if ye do these things ye shall never fall).


Examine each one of these additions to faith, and give a scripture or scriptural example to verify their connection with faith.


V     2 Peter 1:5-11And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith


V     virtue;


V     and to virtue knowledge


V     and to knowledge temperance;


V     and to temperance patience;


V     and to patience godliness;


V     and to godliness brotherly kindness;


V     and to brotherly kindness charity.



V     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. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.



What a challenge to us, we should be convicted by the Holy Ghost on these things. Your ABC books should be greatly enlarged after this.
