2 Peter 1

Moving right along to Peter's next letter.

Here's how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people's insights

v. His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him.

We have everything we need!

I often need to remind myself of this.

v.12-13 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have. I think it is right to refresh your memory.

And it is ok to need reminding!

v.1 To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours.

Our faith is precious. It was also costly. It is a faith that we received, we didn't earn it. For these reasons we should value it highly and be grateful for it.

v.9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

(From Constable’s Commentary) "As is usual in the Bible, the idea of 'forgetting' is not a mental process but a practical failure to take into account the true meaning and significance of something."

"We do not passively experience Christian growth, but actively pursue it!"
