A blessed reminder

In times like these, it is especially important to remember the basics of our faith.

When the Apostle Peter was nearing the end of his life, with his martyrdom imminent, he wrote to encourage the early believers who were also enduring persecution.

The little New Testament book of 2 Peter has only one brief chapter and is easy to overlook, but it contains the very essence of Christianity.

He reminds Christ’s followers, even when times are confusing and difficult, of what is truly important:

…giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 1:5-8 (NKJV)

If you are feeling unsettled and insecure today, read and meditate on 2 Peter and be encouraged.
