ADD TO YOUR FAITH ...
Here, the apostle Peter tells us to add to our faith:
"...And beside this, giving all diligence, ADD TO YOUR FAITH VIRTUE; and to virtue KNOWLEDGE; And to knowledge TEMPERANCE; and to temperance PATIENCE and to patience GODLINESS;
And to godliness BROTHERLY KINDNESS; and to brotherly kindness CHARITY.
For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren
nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence TO MAKE YOUR CALLING AND ELECTION SURE: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:" 2 Peter 1:5-10
Peter tells us that we are to ADD TO OUR FAITH --and we have things to DO to make our calling and election sure.
