Applications Of the Like Precious Faith

(begun by RandyP )

kjv@2Peter:1:1 @ Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:


It is one things to believe a certain thing, a whole other thing to make productive daily application of it. We see a great number of good hearted people, even believers, in serious situations in their life becoming more and more unfruitful and barren and we have to wonder why that is. We can do that by examining how differently Peter saw what the Lord was trying to get us to see in this.

In our pre-requisite FoundationsOfTheLikePreciousFaith study guide we began to get the sense of just how different this "equal to the Apostles" faith is from our many awkward preconceptions, so too is the application of it I believe. It is a transformational faith that is intended to bare abundant fruit in each of our daily lives, yet at the same time this is a faith sorely misunderstood and mis-applied. Shall we say mis-sourced and mis-directed?

If you or somebody you know are at one of those crucial points where trans-formative faith is exactly what is being called for, then you owe it to yourself to study through the links and aids that are provided right here. Don't just read past these things as you think that you all ready know. These resources are designed for you to go at your own pace and as deeply as you care to search into these deep deep matters. You then are responsible for yourself to seek fruitful application of this like precious faith in and of the knowledge of Jesus Christ. We hope and pray that you will inquire far enough to find the answers that the Lord truly has for you.

kjv@2Peter:1:7 @ And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

kjv@2Peter:1:8 @ 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.

kjv@2Peter:1:9 @ But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

kjv@2Peter:1:10 @ Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

kjv@2Peter:1:11 @ For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Study Questions:

  1. What is the faith that we are starting from? What is it? Where does it come from? What is it in?
  2. If divine power gives us all things pertaining to life and godliness, where do the items we are about to add come from?

  3. What is it to have this in us and abound in a way possible by no other means than in the knowledge of Christ?
  4. What would we be unfruitful/barren in by not having this in us?
  5. What would we be blind/shortsighted/tied back into our former nature about?
  6. What is it about this process that would make us more assured of our calling/election?
  7. When is the entrance ministered?
