Make Every Effort to Grow

Thu 14th-May-2015

Offering: “Make Me Over” by Natalie Grant

Listen to how an article from Tuesday’s Washington Post begins: “It is every pilot’s worst nightmare to hear strange sounds coming from a plane. An exploding engine. A cracking exhaust valve. The metallic ping of a bolt sheering under pressure. At 35,000 feet, even the smallest of sounds can signal serious trouble. So it was surely a frightening moment on Monday when an Alaska Airlines pilot heard a banging noise only a few minutes after takeoff.

“The problem wasn’t a broken instrument, however, but rather a drowsy luggage handler. Passengers on the flight from Seattle to Los Angeles were shocked when their plane returned to the airport almost immediately after taking off. They were even more stunned when rescue workers waiting on the tarmac popped open the plane’s cargo hold and removed an airport employee. The employee had apparently dozed off while loading suitcases and woken up in the sky.”

This got me thinking about the Christian life. Some Christians have fallen asleep surrounded by baggage and as a result they’ve been grounded. Friend, listen. You can’t take off spiritually if you’re asleep and you won’t fly if you’ve bedded down with your baggage.

We’re going to see today that there can be no coasting for Christians. If we want to grow in grace we can’t be spiritual sluggards or pew potatoes. Please turn in your Bibles to 2 Peter 1:5-11. Let’s stand and read together:

“But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

If you want to take off spiritually, these three elements must be present in your life.

• Add to your faith (5-7)

• Abound in fruitfulness (8-9)

• Assurance of forever (10-11)

2 Peter covers a lot of topics but is primarily a book about Jesus Christ as this word art graphic shows. Last week in verses 1-4 we learned that we already have everything we need to live life and everything we need to grow in godliness. While we might not have everything we want we already have everything we need. Because of that we’re to unleash God’s power,
