2 Peter 1:3 By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.We have a promise that when He returns we shall be like Him. That expectation must help us to attain a godly life. Knowing that we will be given a grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 1 John 3:3 And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as he is pure.

Hebrews 6:4-6 It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance.
