Be Partakers in the Divine Nature

According as his divine power hath
given unto us all things that
pertain unto life and godliness,
through the knowledge of him that
hath called us to glory and
virtue:
Whereby are given unto us
exceeding great and precious
promises: that by these ye might
be partakers of the divine nature,
having escaped the corruption that
is in the world through lust.

And beside this, giving all
diligence, add to your faith
virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and
to temperance patience; and to
patience godliness;
And to godliness brotherly
kindness; and to brotherly
kindness charity.
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.

2 Peter 1:3-11
