Everything we need (2 Peter 1)
We are a community of faith. We welcome anyone who wants to explore what faith in Jesus looks like. Faith is basic to who we are; we believe in Jesus who died for our sins and who rose again. Through his resurrection we escape the decay that is in the world.*
Peter tells us to add seven things to our faith. He tells us that God's power has given us everything we need to live a godly life. So it is our job to put our faith into practice. The ultimate goal is love, a life lived as Jesus lived.
Peter says that God has called us by his glory and goodness. He calls us into that glory and goodness too.
Don't forget that you are escaping the decay of the world. Be productive. Be effective. God's power has given us everything we need. There's lots of work to do.

* We really do mean that. Christ rose from the dead and so will we.

God wants us to love no matter what the situation could be. This world has been clouded with so many things happening surrounding us, and this might push us to lose the essential thing from us, which is faith. Despite everything, there's a need for all of us to be strong and cling to our faith, because that's simply the right thing to do. If we are too weak and vulnerable and couldn't handle situation like this, God will be affected and He will surely feel sad about that.
