2 Corinthians 10: 3,4 states: "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds..." God has given us "all things that pertain to life and godliness" (2 Peter 1:3). In fact this verse richly reminds us that these "all things" are "according as His divine power" and "through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue..."
Think about it! He chose me to His "so great salvation," called me in time and history to it, gave me His Holy Spirit, the Bible, the Church, service gifts, and His undying love and continuing and sanctifying efforts in my behalf. The Word declares: "Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it" (1 Thess. 5:24). But, He involves us in the process of living for Him. Again, God has given us "all things that pertain to life and godliness" (2 Peter 1:3).
In faith it is our responsibility to avail ourselves of these enabling graces! He will never give up on us; but we must give ourselves to Him and to all the means He has provided whereby we may glorify His Name! Otherwise, we hobble on square wheels.
