(2Peter1:3&4The Message) Everything that goes into a life of pleasing God has been miraculously given to us by getting to know, personally and intimately, the one who invited us to God.  The best invitation we ever received! We were also given absolutely terrific promises to pass on to you – your tickets to participation in the life of God after you turned your back on a world corrupted by lust.

Jesus came to invite us to know God personally, and intimately.  And in that relationship we have everything we need to live a Godly life.  The closer we are to him the more like him we become. 

Then there are the promises of God.  Topping the list is eternal life.  Physical death has now becomes a mere transition into eternity.  We have become his children, and he is our Father.  God has promised to watch over us and provide for us.

All these things are possible because Jesus died and rose again on our behalf.  He walked among us giving us an example of a Godly life.  He is our teacher, our mentor, and our advocate.  Jesus invites us to come to him that we might receive all that the Father has prepared for us.  This is surely, “The best invitation we ever received”.
