ADD TO FAITH, VIRTUE

MARCH 7, 2 Peter 1:5

Faith without works is dead, that is why we need to add something to our faith,and this something is virtue. Virtue is right living. Christians must grow in spiritual graces so that he or she may bear more fruit for God. These spiritual graces make him zealous for God, trusting and obeying God in everyday life, and fruitful in works of righteousness.

 

Faith must result in a changed life. Our parents, brothers and sisters must be able to see that we are more helpful and considerate. For example, we could help our parents without being asked to. We can give way to our siblings because we know they like that cereal or piece of juicy chicken thigh more than us. Or we could remember not to make noise or inconvenience our classmates because we are considerate and kind. We shine for Jesus when we are full of good works!

 

Try to recall some changes in your life...

Thought: There is joy in growing and being a better Christian!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, may I abound in every good work for thee. Help me to be a true Christian, and not to be nice and considerate only on certain days or at certain times. Jesus was always the kind and wonderful Saviour. He was full of virtue, and I hope to follow Him! And in His name I pray – amen.
