29. Partakers of His Divine Nature

SERIES: 31 REASONS TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS

2 Peter 1:4
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.

We celebrate Christmas because we celebrate

  • Jesus’ glory and virtue which motivated Him to give us exceedingly great and precious promises
  • that through the promises of God, we are adopted as sons and daughters of God (Galatians 4:5-7)
  • the amazing deep love of God that wants to share His life and even His divine nature with us

What amazing love Lord that you adopt me as your child, giving me your divine nature.
