FOR READING: 2 Peter 1:1-21
MEMORY VERSE: For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure; they will Keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your Knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:8
Life is besetted with a lot of uncertainties, problems, drawbacks and wrestlings. Living a fruitful and meaningful life therefore becomes a bit impossible in our society today and the world in general. Yet there seems to be a mind-boggling question from Christians of how best they should live their lives with Christ.

It should be remembered that Rome was not built in a day; and as a Journey of a thousand kilometers begins with a step. You can live a pleasant life when the right attitudes are employed. Strive for godly character and abound in it. His grace is sufficient to take you through and make you lead a victorious Christian life till He comes again. ANB
- In what ways have you been challenged by Peter’s life considering his educational background, profession and his level of faith as a disciple?

PRAYER: Our Ancient of Days, may you revive us, teaching me to lead a holy, righteous and submitted life unto thee.
THOUGHT: In His presence is joy, peace, love, faithfulness and pleasures forevermore.
