The Background and the Blessing

2 Peter 1:1-2

  1. The Background

“Using both names conveys the life experience of one who isn’t afraid to wed together ‘The man as I was born’ and ‘I am the man I am today because of the gracious influence of Jesus.’—David Helm

“We have apostolic faith—nothing less. Our faith is given equal standing.” —David Helm

“Our ability to stand before God someday as rescued and reclaimed persons depends entirely on the righteousness of Jesus Christ. He alone has flown through this world without falling. He alone can and did make atonement for sin. Thus, he alone can bring us home.” —David Helm
