“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith…” 2 Peter 1:5
The word “diligence” in this Scripture is from a Greek word that carries the meanings of being earnest and zealous and to have a haste that accompanies. When we receive Jesus, God means for us to “get busy” with our growth and development in the way that He designed for us to do it. If you have been lagging in your developmental process or if you didn’t know what to do, now is the time to get at it. 2 Peter 1:1-11 makes the picture very clear for us. Start looking into these things today with earnestness, zeal and haste. You will be pleasing the Father and you will grow as He desires.
