Divine Nature – Part 3

Believers need to become aware God has called us to walk in His divine nature.   In order to partake of the divine nature, we have to learn how to yield to the Holy Spirit.  When we yield to the Spirit we can perceive what we are supposed to do each day.  In order to yield to the Spirit, we need to do two things:  get our hearts right, and teach our minds to think like God.  When we get our hearts right, and think like God, then God’s divine nature gently leads us by the Holy Spirit.  The Spirit guides us in a gentle pulling movement, where the flesh causes a forced pushing of our own will.  The Spirit is peaceably gentle.             

2 Peter 1: 2-4   2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.  3  His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 4 Through these He has given us His precious and magnificent promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, now that you have escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.  Berean Study

2 Peter 1: 5-8:   5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith virtue; and to virtue, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities and continue to grow in them, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.   Berean Study

Psalm 139: 23, 2423 God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart.  Examine me through and through; find out everything that may be hidden within me.  Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares.  24 See if there is any path of pain I’m walking on, and lead me back to your glorious, everlasting ways— the path that brings me back to you.

 John 6: 26, 27:  Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27 Do not work for food that perishes, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on Him God the Father has placed His seal of approval.” NKJ

John 6: 53-57:  53  So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of Man, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My flesh is real food, and My blood is real drink.  56 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood remains in Me, and I in him. 57 Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me. 58 This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your fathers, who ate the manna and died, the one who eats this bread will live forever.”  Berean Study
