So make every effort to apply the benefits of these promises to your life. Then your faith will produce a life of moral excellence. A life of moral excellence leads to knowing God better.
Knowing God leads to self-control. Self-control leads to patient endurance, and patient endurance leads to godliness.
Godliness leads to love for other Christians, and finally you will grow to have genuine love for everyone.
