All We Need
2 Peter 1:3-4 (NIV)
3His 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. 4Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

Some choose to believe God will not deliver them from sin so they have an excuse to harbor it. Their desire for sin is greater than their desire to be delivered from it. It is somewhat like the lover who says “Stop. Don’t. Stop. Don’t. Stop. Don’t stop. Don’t stop.” You have the power and promises of God to be delivered from sin. Are you willing? If you are, God is able and willing. He is all you need.
