Precious & Magnificent Moments
Grow in Grace and in the Knowledge of Our Lord
II Peter 3:15-18
I. The Age of Salvation
The human mind desires to see meaning and direction and coherence in history.
Let’s be a people who key off of God and see the times in which we live from his perspective.
II. Paul’s Letters as Scripture
So by calling in Paul’s support, Peter shows that there is agreement among the apostles.
The apostles are united with each other and with the Old Testament in one great inspired book of God.
III. Scripture Can Be Hard to Understand
The mind of God is vastly greater than our mind and will often be perceived by us as strange and complex, not familiar and simple.
IV. Misinterpretation Can Lead to Destruction
Another way to put this is that the interpretation of Scripture is a matter of life and death.
V. Guard Yourself from Error
The antidote to deception and destruction is growth in the grace and knowledge of Christ.
After “Jesus” there is no sweeter word in all the Bible than “grace.”
The best fertilizer for our hope and godliness is the knowledge of our future in God’s grace.
To him be glory both now and forever!
