5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
2 Peter 1:5-10 KJV
If you would come to know of Christ our King,
Then work with diligence these attributes:
Keep faith so strong it stands through anything,
And build your virtue as an absolute.
Increase in knowledge of the scriptured word,
Conduct with temperence your words and ways,
Be patient to endure all trials incurred,
And strive toward godliness without delays.
With kindness treat your brother as yourself,
And move with charity in all you do.
Without these things you’re blind upon a shelf,
Forgetting what Christ’s death has done for you.
Give diligence to make your calling sure
And you will never fall as immature.

2Timothy 1:6This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. 7For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
