This Sunday we open the last chapter of Peter’s 2nd letter to the early Church.
2 weeks ago we saw Peter urging the Church to resist the growing sin & false teaching surrounding them, & too instead continue in lives of godliness; lives that are about who you now are in Christ & rejecting who you were in sin, living lives shaped & influenced by the Gospel, transformed by the Gospel, lives that love & live for Jesus, & which seek to be in-tune with how God desires us to live.
Last week we again saw Peter urging the Church to continue in godliness by remaining a “Certain Church within an Uncertain World”; remaining a people with a certain, fixed, unshakeable faith within a uncertain world marred by false teachers & sin, & to remain a certain kind of people that stand apart from the rest as beacons of truth & hope within a world of uncertainty, chaos & need.
This week as Peter continues to remind us that we have everything we need for life & godliness, we’ll see him point us to Jesus as he confronts some of the false teaching about Jesus return.
Peter urges believers to “look to the King” & live focused on Him
instead of being swept up into a life of unholiness & sin by false teaching.
join us for the conclusion of 2 Peter this Sunday
