Daily Bread 8/22/2023


    Daily Bread – August 22, 2023 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) 2 Peter 1:4 – Through which precious and exceeding great promises are given to us, that through these you may be partakers of a divine nature, having escaped from the corruption in lust in the world. The divine nature is the same as the new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). The message of this verse is primarily the same as that given by Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “If any man be in Christ Jesus, he is a new creation; old things are past away, and behold all things are new.” When a person is born of the Spirit, he or she becomes the servant of Jesus Christ, doing the will of God from the heart (John 3:6; Ephesians 6:6; Romans 8:2). The power of the divine nature, which is the nature of Christ Jesus, empowers us to escape the sinful desires in the realms of the world. All that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life – is satanic influence which results in the corruption of spirit, soul, and body (1 John 2:15-17; Romans 6:23).
