Make every effort to add to your faith. – 2 Peter 1:5 (2 Peter 1:5-11)
A good many be faithful ter thar ideas ’bout tha Son, but only a few actually be faithful ter tha Son. In our moments of questioning, tha Son asks, “Do ya want ter leave too?” (John 6:66-68) Faith be not committed ter facts. Faith be committed ter a person.
If we want ter be close as a soul mate with tha Son, it ‘ill mean refusing ter do or even think certain things. Think on tha character of tha Son and seek his qualities. If ya lack even one, ya be near-sighted and blind. Clean yer specs. Clean yer mind. Be washed clean in tha blood of tha Son. Thar kin be no higher honor than ter stand tha midnight watch with tha Son while ya await his rising.
Now if ya count yer self as a mate with tha Son, then make yer calling sure and secure and add ter yer faith:
- Self control
- A likeness ter Skipper
- Brotherly kindness
Such qualities be tha stripes of them who sail with Skip. Do this and ya ‘ill be effective and productive in all ya do.
If ya sail with tha Son, ya ‘ill be regarded as a daydreamer and worse. But ya ‘ill also be called his friend, brother-sister, and disciple. And thar kin be no greater honor than that.
