Promises of God from 2 Peter

Here are selected promises of God from 2 Peter compiled by Kenneth Boa:
God has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness (1:3).
We have received God’s great and precious promises, so that through them we may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires (1:4).
As we grow in faith, goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love, we will make our calling and election sure and will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (1:5-11).
With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.  The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness.  He is patient with us, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance (3:8-9).
