Through the Knowledge Of HIM – Divine Nature / Escape Corruption

Escaping the corruption of the world is possible through our knowledge of HIM. When we become students of His promises, we begin to understand how we should live because we now know who we are in HIM. Amongst many promises on identity, the Word tells us

2 Corinthians 5:21 (NIV)
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Emphasis Mine

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
Emphasis Mine

These knowledge changes our thinking, our views and more. As a result, our desires change. We start longing for the things he longs for, thereby escaping corruption. In order to maintain this position of the divine nature, we need to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18 (NIV)).

2 Peter 3:17-18 (NIV)

Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.
Emphasis Mine

In this state, we are not held bound by the standards of society. True freedom is experienced from the inside – out. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed (John 8:36 (NKJV)).
