Confirming One's Calling and Election (2 Peter 1:3-10)

Peter 1:3–10 (NIV): 3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
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.

In whom do you observe Christlike qualities? How might you cultivate those qualities in your own life as God provides what you need?

My wife, Eun Jung, has Christlike qualities - honesty, diligence, self-control, and faith. I will hold my faith in Jesus, believing that God provides me the wisdom and strength to grow. I will exercise self-control in my daily life.

"Holy Spirit, please grow in me the qualities that reflect Jesus so I might reveal Your goodness to the world around me."
