1Chron.26,27; 2Pet. 1; Micah 4; Luke 13

“Partakers of the divine nature” is

my favorite phrase in all of scripture. I’m in. 

I’ve been picked for the winning team. I’ve been invited along for the most epic adventure of all time. I get to participate in the process of my own spiritual growth through the miraculous revamping of the Holy Spirit. 

We’ve discussed the majesty of God in nature, the magnanimity of His creation and what this speaks towards His character and power.

The Psalmist (8) captures this sentiment:

3 When I consider your heavens, 
   the work of your fingers, 
the moon and the stars, 
   which you have set in place, 
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them, 
   human beings that you care for them?

When the enormity of God and His glory are glimpsed, the next logical thought is, “Who am I?”

Who am I that You would make the heavens, make me, care for me, and invite me to participate in the renewal of my soul? I would be crazy to say no. I would have to be out of my mind to miss out on the opportunity to see my existence turned from life to death, from sin to  victory, from ugly to beautiful by participating in God’s mysterious and wonderful divine nature.

Jesus, I’m in.
