2 Peter 1:9
For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
-Apostle Peter advices on partaking of the divine nature of Christ & escaping corruption of the world through lust. He also alludes that, adding diligence to faith, faith to knowledge, knowledge to self-control, self-control to perseverance, perseverance to godliness, godliness to brotherly kindness & brotherly kindness to love. The result is fruitfulness in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
-Short-sightedness in actual terms is lack of focus & vision causing blindness in ones direction of purpose. The Holy Spirit helps us to overcome lusts of the world & enables us to do as the word of God instructs. In His fruit, we are build on a stable foundation & when the storm comes we remain unshaken.
Fill our hearts with Your love, Oh Holy Spirit. Abide in our hearts to help us at the wake of challenges & temptations. May Your fruit lead us in the knowledge of Christ to remain focused in all good works. Amen
