09/17 2 Peter 1:10-11
So, dear brothers and sisters, work hard to prove that you really are among those God has called and chosen. Do these things, and you will never fall away. 11 Then God will give you a grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It takes real work to control yourself. We can see the things around us, the mountains erupting, the wind blowing but we cannot see the Spirit of God at work in our heart and in our life. Trust the Lord. Listen to His Spirit within you and bend your knee in submission and do what He says. The Lord will not fail you nor forsake you. Jesus loves you.
