Daily Devotion: Jesus, Our Savior

Bible Reading: II Peter 3

Key Verse: Verse 18 - But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”

Key Words: our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ

In the book of II Peter, we see Jesus Christ as our Savior. On five different occasions in this small but powerful book, Peter mentions Jesus as our Savior: II Peter 1:1, 11, 2:20, 3:2, and in our key verse, verse 18.

But if you will notice again in our key verse, verse 18, we are told to “grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior.” How can we grow in the knowledge of Jesus as our Savior? Let me suggest that you do it through gardening.

First of all, plant some squash: squash gossip, criticism and indifference.

On the second row plant some peas: prayer, promptness, perseverance, politeness, preparedness, purity, and patience.

On the third row plant some lettuce: let us be unselfish and loyal; let us be faithful at our task; let us search the Scriptures daily; let us not be weary in well doing; let us be obedient in all things; let us be thoughtful; let us love one another.

And finally, no garden is complete without turnips: turn up for church, turn up with a smile, turn up with determination to do your best for God.

After planting, may you grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ; and may you reap rich results.

What to do:
✞ Plant your garden.
✞ Live off your garden.
