2 Peter 1_3

2 Peter 1:3

His divine power Here, Peter uses a singular term to reference the power of God and Jesus, further indicating that he understands them to be one and the same.

Necessary for life and godliness Peter asserts that Christians are fully equipped to live a life pleasing to God, to overcome any obstacle they face, and to persevere under trial. In summary, God is sufficient—a concept that Peter will come back to later in this letter (see 2 Peter 3).

Excellence of character It is solely because of who God is that believers have an opportunity to be in relationship with Him.
