Partake of the divine nature

The Holy Spirit helps us spontaneously partake of our Messiah's life and share it with one another. The veil that was over our hearts has been lifted away and we know God the Father and His Son by the Spirit. In the Spirit, there are no more natural, social, or religious barriers to fellowship. For, we are all one in the Messiah.  We know we know Christ if we obey his commandments. 

"We are sure that we know Christ if we obey his commandments. ... This is the order He gave us: If you love God, love your brother" (1 John 2:3; 4:21).

Messiah Jesus teaches us to love and obey through on-the-job-training. As we get to know Him better, His life flows to us and through us with less and less restrictions. As we partake of the divine nature, we grow more and more in the things that make us useful and productive in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

"SIMON PETER, SERVANT AND APOSTLE OF JESUS CHRIST, to the people who by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ were given a faith as precious as ours: as you know God and our Lord Jesus, may you enjoy more and more of His grace and peace. By His glory and might He once gave us very great and precious promises and now has called us. When we got to know Him, His divine power gave us everything for life and godliness to help you escape the corruption that lust brought into the world and to share the divine nature."

"In view of that, try very hard to add to your faith moral power, to moral power knowledge, to knowledge self control, to self control endurance, to endurance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, to brotherly kindness love" (2 Peter 1:1-7).

We become increasingly useful and productive as we partake of the divine nature and mature in the character traits that under-gird kingdom relationship. Peter closes this exhortation with this promise.

"If you do this, you will never fail. Then with rich gifts you will be welcomed into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 1:11),

Let's share the divine nature.
