The Best Recipe Book Ever!

My mom, sister, and I have just started a new recipe blog. It's called "Life's a Bowl of Cherries". We look forward to sharing recipes with many people all over the world. Most of us enjoy trying out new recipes, don't we? It's always great to try a new recipe and it actually turns out and we like it. The Bible has a lot of recipes for Christian living and none of them fail, turn out bad, or ever have an error or typo in them. It is the perfect guide for us to follow.

Read 2 Peter 1:3-11.
In my Bible and maybe in yours, the heading says, "Making One’s Calling and Election Sure", taken from verse 10. "Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall". Peter is saying, “Christians, follow this recipe for a successful Christian life”. And although Peter wrote the book, we know that all scripture is inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16), so this is really God's recipe.

Verse 3 says, "His (God’s) divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by his own glory and goodness."

Isn’t it important when preparing a recipe to have all of the necessary ingredients? This verse says God’s divine power has given us EVERYTHING WE NEED for life and godliness- he has the ingredients! Through God’s awesome power, He has given us everything we need for life and godliness! But, there's a very important phrase here - THROUGH OUR KNOWLEDGE OF HIM.

The key is this: We have to have the knowledge of Him.
And how do we become more knowledgeable of God?
Through studying his word - through reading His recipe book - the Bible.

Have a great day, everyone!
