"For this very reason make every effort to add to your faith goodness;
and to goodness, knowledge;
and to knowledge, self-control;
and to self-control, perseverance;
and to perseverance, godliness;
and to godliness, brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly kindness, love.
For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure,
they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive
in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
But if anyone does not have them,
he is nearsighted and blind,
and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins."
ADD to your FAITH
Faith must be more than belief in certain facts;
it must result in action,
growth in christian character,
and the practice of moral discipline,
or it will die away.
Each of these actions do not come automatically,
they require hard work.
They are not optional,
they must be a continual part of the Christian's life.
We don't finish one and start on the next,
but we work on them all together.
