 18 But grow in grace,4 and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. [This shows grace is not instantly received as salvation upon belief. What more grace could be received than salvation? But you must grow in grace, until the Spirit has put to death all the lusts, pride, and passions of the sinful nature before you will ever see salvation.]

 5 For this very reason, make every effort [the maximum possible],2 to add to your faith, virtue [excellence]; and to virtue knowledge; [How do you add to your faith? You sit and wait on God, listening, watching, and then obeying. His spoken words heard impart the life of God into your heart, John 6:63. You grow in faith with each revelation received. By the grace of His revelations Jesus authors your faith and increases your faith in the progression of these verses. From the Word of the Lord within: "I must warn you — you must make every effort to add to your faith and enter the rest."]
