“By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself  by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.  And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.”         2 Peter 1:3-4 NLT
