Reflections- "For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love."
-2 Peter 1:5-7
THE PASTOR'S PERSPECTIVE
A pastor by the name of Craig Groeschel wrote this. I hope it will encourage you- "You are not your past. You are not what you did. You are not what others have done to you. You are an ambassador for Christ. You are God's masterpiece created in Christ Jesus to do the good works He prepared in advance for you to do. You are a child of the living God."
