Fruitful and Effective Lives (Part II)

2 Peter 1:5-11

Since God has called us to his own glory and excellence through faith in Jesus Christ, we must make every effort to confirm this calling by growing in our faith.

  1. Growing in our faith will help us be fruitful and effective.

“Peter is convinced that true Christian knowledge is not irrelevant book-learning, but that it changes the Christian and then impacts the world.” —Christopher Green

  1. Growing in our faith will lead us into the eternal kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“His serious concern is that we take the responsibility to continue to the end of our Christian lives more deeply grounded within the same hope with which we started.” —Christopher Green

“The attitude that takes hold of Christ by faith and then lives a life of obedience to him is the one that proves that our salvation will last.” —Christopher Green
