2peter1:4-  “giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Citizens of heaven are not idle. Their lives are ones of diligence, continuing steadfastly in a task until the goal has been accomplished. All diligence must be given to the adding to our faith,  growth does not happen by accident
