Central Idea: God has graciously and abundantly provided all that we need to live in godliness. By his promises we can actually participate in the Christ-life, not by passive indifference, but by diligent pursuit of Christlike character, bearing fruit that demonstrates we are indeed genuine participants in the divine life and calling. Explanations / Questions: v.3, the primary verb clause is actually in v.2, "Grace and peace be multiplied to you..." This greeting flows directly into Peter's exposition of all the great grace that we have been given in Christ. In other words, Peter's greeting is not merely a standard formula empty of truth and reality. He can say, "grace and peace be multiplied.." even as "His divine power has granted... all things..." v.4, NASB opens this clause with 'for' which at best is only implied in the Greek. I think the logic being all things have been granted through the knowledge of Christ who calls us to his own glory and excellence , because it is through these that the promises are granted. However, I think it is more clear to see v.4 as an explanation of the glory and excellence in v.3, the antecedents of the pronouns 'these' (4a) and 'them' (4b). v.4b, I highlighted this pupose statement as it seems to be the primary basis for the inferred command in v.5, that is, because God's purpose in granting his precious promises is that through Christ's glory and excellence we may become partakers of the divine nature , therefore be diligent to grow in maturity in Christlikeness. v.8-9, v.9 does not give a ground for v.8, rather both clauses ground the command in v.5-7 to diligently grow in Christian character, v.8 offering positive reasoning, while v.9 offers negative. I used 'S' to join the two as each clause could stand on its own. v.10-11, the same logic applies to this pair of ground clauses. In this case they equally ground the command of v.10a, "be dilligent..." v.5-11, The Bi-Lateral relationship helps not only to show the parallel between the two commands in this passage, namely v.5, "be diligent to supply... ," and v.10a, "be diligent to make certain..." but also the vital connection between both commands and the basis given in v. 3-4, namely, all that we need to obey the commands has been graciously given by God. Peter, while firmly calling his readers to diligently 'work out their salvation,' does not leave room for the mistaken notion that our salvation is in any way merited by human effort.
