III Peter 1:2-11:  Introduction to
Peter and Paul
"Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the
knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His
divine power has given to us all things that
pertain to life and godliness, through the
knowledge of Him who called us by glory and
virtue, 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.

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.

For if these things are yours and abound, you will
be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge
of our Lord Jesus Christ.  For he who lacks these
things is short sighted, even to blindness, and has
forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to
make your call and election sure, for if you do
these things you will never stumble, for so an
entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into
the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ."  (II Peter 1:2-11)
