His precious and very great promises

"May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and excellence, by which He has granted to us His precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire."

-2 Peter 1:2-4

My goodness, I'd forgotten how much I love 2 Peter. I could spend days just meditating on this passage (and I probably will).

Grace and peace multiplied . . . everything for life and godliness . . . called to God's own glory and excellence . . . precious and great promises . . . partaking in the divine nature . . . escaped from the world's corruption. Truth too rich for my mind to process in one sitting! And these are just a few verses.
