Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world. —2 Peter 1:4
Divine nature breathes into us the desire to serve others. The divine nature within us ignites our desire to reach out to others and prompts us to act. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ can help us find the strength to do so. Could the Lord be asking us “What can be done for this daughter, this brother, this father, or this friend?” —Rosemary M.
