Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of February 8, 2015

JoBeth-31 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 2 Peter 1:2 (NKJV)

Are you in need of abundant grace and peace? Grace is undeserved favor and divine assistance. Peace is tranquility, harmony and freedom from disturbance or affliction. The Biblical definition of knowledge is based on understanding from experience. This verse exhorts that the more we increase in knowing our Father God and Jesus the more His grace and peace will increase in us. Like the Hebrews in the wilderness that had to gather fresh manna each day, Jesus is the Bread of Life that God has provided for us to seek each day. Whatever we may have experienced of God’s love, mercy, forgiveness and provision in the past, be encouraged to KNOW that we can seek Him each new day to supply His sufficient favor, divine assistance, and freedom from affliction. May His grace and peace be multiplied to you today.
