Add the Christian Graces to Your Soul

Since we have escaped the corruption of the world and have received the grace and peace of God through Jesus Christ, Peter exhorted us, “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love” (2 Peter 1:5-7).
Often Christians focus upon knowing all the right things so they can tell others that they are wrong, but the focus of Scripture is for us to be what we need to be and that is to be the image of Jesus Christ.
The way to become like Jesus is to add to yourself the things that Peter listed.
Do you give daily diligence to add those things to your soul?
