Lent 2009 (4) – Being a saint

God’s divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Thus he has given us, through these things, his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of lust, and may become participants in the divine nature.
2 Peter 1:3-4

Each one of us can become a saint. It is God who gives us all we need for life and for being saintly. Jesus came and shared our human life and showed us his glory and his goodness. Jesus calls us to share in his godly life.

If we take hold of God’s promise that we can share in his life, in his glory and his goodness, then we can leave behind all our false desires and hopes. If we are like Jesus then we too can share in his divine nature. We can be godly. We can ourselves be so like God that others will find him in us.
