2 Peter 1:12-15
Finishing well requires us to remember and return to the truths of the gospel, over and over again, day after day.
- Remembering sustains our godliness (v.12).
“The believer’s future hope will be fully realized as godly character is nurtured through strenuous moral effort and built upon God’s glorious promises.” —Jim Shaddix
“Yesterday’s godliness won’t suffice for today if left unattended and undernourished. It has to be fed every day. The tendency of the human heart is to be forgetful, so we all need the truth of the gospel to be rehearsed in our hearts and minds.” —Jim Shaddix
- Remembering stimulates our passion (v.13-14).
- Remembering strengthens our readiness (v. 15).
