So don’t lose a minute in building what you’ve been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience...
2 Peter 1: 5-6(a) [The Message]
Let’s look at the first four qualities which can help our faith to grow.
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith, goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. 2 Peter 1: 5 – 7 [NIV]
Someone who has just become a Christian might think that their conversion is the end point in a long process. But those who have been Christians for some time know that the journey is not over: it’s only just begun!
