⚜️ *ADD VIRTUE TO YOUR FAITH*

_(APRIL: The Month of FAITH)_
📖 *Scriptural Text:*
_*(2 Peter 1:5)*_
_“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue”_
When some persons get born again, all they focus on is how to use their faith to decree a thing, declare the word and expect instant results. Well, faith surely produces results, but there are instances where faith is not enough. The Bible says we are to supplement our faith with virtue.
Many people think of virtue as morality, decency, respectability and a conforming lifestyle. While that is correct, it is not quite what Peter seeks to present in our scriptural text today. The particular sense of this word 'virtue' here is more like the Latin word 'virtus' which means manliness, courage, fortitude - the ability to continue in the midst of aridity.
Like Joshua who had the faith to take over the leadership of God’s people, God is calling on you to buffer your faith with courage: "be strong and of good courage". Do not let scarcity, opposition or even persecution stop you in your tracks, but sustain your faith by standing firm in the word and contending till the victory is yours. Hallelujah!
