Redoing Our Circuit Boards

2 Peter 1:3

3 Seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. (NASV)

In our travels to various places here in the States, we always turn on our GPS when we head out. We’ve found it extremely helpful especially when we’re in different states and on a new route we haven’t been on before. There are times when we’ll make an unscheduled stop or little side trip that we haven’t programmed into our GPS and immediately Rita will tell us that she’s ‘recalculating’ because she doesn’t know what we’re doing. We chuckle at ‘her’ and eventually get back on the correct designated road.

Even with advancements in our modern-day technology we sometimes need a reformatting of our computers, our cellphones, or even our GPS devices. The same is true in our spiritual lives, and that’s what Jesus has provided for us—a reformatting. It involves renewing our circuit boards, our minds.

That’s basically what Peter is sharing as he begins this chapter in second Peter. He says that through Jesus we already have everything we need because God’s power has provided it. What is it? Everything that pertains to and is involved in connecting with God’s life: godliness, a likeness of God’s character in us. We already have that and it becomes more powerful and evident in us as we renew our spiritual circuit boards to that truth.

It’s vital to understand the power of the New Covenant in Jesus’ blood because God opened the door to a new dispensation of God’s Grace. God provides grace, forgiveness, love, blessings—everything He is—for anyone who would receive it. We don’t have to perform to get God to do things for us. We don’t have to feel guilty and condemned when we slip up and fall. God’s grace has covered all our mistakes, shortcomings, failures, and sins.

God’s divine love and power through Jesus has provided everything we need that pertains to His life flowing in and through us. Dig into the Word and find out everything that Jesus provided through the New Covenant because it’s time for a redo. It’s time to renew the spiritual circuit board in your mind so you can partake of everything that Jesus has for you as His child.
