Milk and cookies, cheese and crackers, bacon and eggs, and peanut butter and jelly, are just of few of the things that seem to just go together. Also we can find that idea in the Bible. We have Adam and Eve, David and Goliath, Priscilla and Aquila, and Paul and Silas. The last verse of 2 Peter, verse 18, highlights one of these biblical dynamic duos--grace and knowledge. Peter says, "But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ".
To study to grow in knowledge, we need to make provisions of the duo of time and place. Growing in a knowledge of God means, again a duo: 1. Understanding what He did for us; 2. What He wants us to do. It means applying the Word to our lives daily.
To grow in grace has the same duo present in our progress. 1. What God's grace has do for us, as He extended in our direction. 2. What it means for us to extend grace to those around us.
God bless, and have a Great Day!
