2 Peter 1:5–11 NIV
5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 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. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins. 10 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Consider This:

• What are you doing to grow as a disciple?
• Is it working?
• How do you know?
• Peter is discussing what a disciple needs to do in order to grow in Christ. What do you think is the most important thing that Peter says?
• Why do you think it is the most important?
• What do you see as the consequences for this decision?
