II Peter 1:3
What one thing could be added to your game that would make you the competitor that you’ve always dreamed of being? I’m sure you have a short list of things that you dream about having that would make you more complete. What do you really need to be the most complete person you could be?
Peter wrote about these ideas at chapter 1 and verse 3 of his second letter, “…as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.” All things? Really?
Yes, really. God has given us everything that we need… pertaining to life and godliness. We certainly may be missing some facets of the game that would make us more complete players, but we have been given everything we need to be the people He’s called us to be.
That’s great news. I can practice, learn, train and compete to become a more complete athlete, but it’s tremendous to know that God has supplied all I need to honor Him with my life through godly living.
As you prepare for competition, remember the great gifts you’ve been given and employ them all in pursuit of a victory. Remember also the great investment that God has made in you to be the person He has created you to be.
