In 2 Peter 3:18 we are exhorted to ‘grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ‘.
The theme of Peter’s second letter is a simple one: the grace of God in Christ provides spiritual maturity to enable Christians to counter false teaching. Peter repeatedly points his readers to the Word of God as the primary means of growth for the Christian (1:4,19-21; 3:1-2, 14-16).
Peter encourages us to apply ourselves to diligently acquiring true knowledge of God and evidence this by living out a life of faith, so that we may ‘be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless‘ (3:14), rather than be exploited by deceptive words (2:3) and become slaves of corruption (2:19).
Join us as we delve into and learn from the letter of 2 Peter.
