To Grow in the True Grace of Jesus Christ Remain Established in the Truth 2 Peter 1:1-21

Truth Helps Us to Grow? Do beliefs control actions? Can we depart from truth and still be loved? How much growth should we expect? What if I do not notice growth in others? What if others do not notice growth in me?

Do beliefs control actions?

Can we depart from truth and still be loved?

How much growth should we expect?

What if I do not notice growth in others?

What if others do not notice growth in me?

2PE 1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours: 2PE 1:2 Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

2PE 1:3 His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

2PE 1:5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.

8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.

2PE 1:10 Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

2PE 1:12 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have. 13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body, 14 because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. 15 And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.

Using Memory to Remain in Truth Power & Knowledge – His power and our knowledge Knowledge is progressive and it begins at salvation In salvation God’s splendor ( doxa ) and moral excellence ( arete ) are revealed Really, is salvation God’s choice or ours?

Power & Knowledge – His power and our knowledge

Knowledge is progressive and it begins at salvation

In salvation God’s splendor ( doxa ) and moral excellence ( arete ) are revealed

Really, is salvation God’s choice or ours?

Beyond Prayers & Promises We are intended to PARTICIPATE in the divine nature We are intended to ESCAPE the corruption This DOES NOT mean that we ignore people or limit our interaction with those who do not exhibit these qualities

We are intended to PARTICIPATE in the divine nature

We are intended to ESCAPE the corruption

This DOES NOT mean that we ignore people or limit our interaction with those who do not exhibit these qualities

Here’s Why Faith is not productive until it is applied. Add goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, brotherly kindness, and love Practice increases our abilities Don’t forget that these are part of the divine nature that includes FORGIVENSS OF SINS

Growth Through Grace If you are growing in grace you can be sure of your calling by God NO ONE – NO ONE except you and God can truly answer the calling question – and your answer needs to match His As long as growth is occurring it is difficult to go backwards
