“By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (2 Peter 1:4 NKJV).In ChrIst we have a new nature, Paul uses the words “in Christ” frequently for its of him and in hi that we now exist as new people gods new creation. outside of him we were carnal in him we are made like him and its in him we now live move and have our being. In him we live as God’s perfected creation. “In him” means:1. In his name we can do the greater works (John 14;12)2. In his in his power and in his strength we can do all things. (Phil 4;14).3. In his family, we have access to the family privileges and inheritance of the saints (Ephesians 1;3-7).Paul states in Ephesians: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms. For He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless in His presence. In love He predestined us for adoption as His sons through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the Beloved One. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. And He has made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Christ”We are now partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” first, partakers of his “divine nature” when we are born we partake of our earthly fathers nature which is the Adamic nature the corrupt nature but by the MIRACLE POWER of the new birth (John 3;5 we become partakers of the divine nature. this means what he is we are. We possess the divine nature attributes of our heavenly father Jesus, love, joy, peace, goodness, faith, long-suffering, gentleness, kindness. This changes everything, and its this living from our new divine nature that enables us to be conquerors and winners in life. “Having escaped” yes you made it! you escaped the corruption that is to come. O what Joy this brings us.Quit living the lower life, quit seeing yourself as the saved trying to change. Jesus has already changed you. So with this in mind live from the inside outPaulImage by Ana Krach from Pixabay
