Detail:

Peter continues his letter to the church with an appeal to return to what they knew to be true and to not allow their minds to be drawn away by the fleeting truths of the day. This reminder has held true for every generation since and is one we need desperately today. The "wisdom" we see in the world around us stands in stark contrast to what we can plainly see in God's creation and how we have seen Him consistently speak and act throughout history. We must remind ourselves, through prayer and the reading of the Word, and we must allow the community of believers to also remind us of the truth. All creation testifies to the glory and truth of God, and by His Spirit's help we can join in.

ABOUT THIS SERIES: The Apostle Peter wrote the epistle (letter), we know as Second Peter, to an unspecified group of believers or churches, in the last years of his life. He is an older, wiser man at this point and speaks with an air of humility, much in contrast to the brash Peter we see in the Gospels. He has seen over the course of his lifetime how his own strength and wisdom have routinely come up short and he has learned that he has nothing to claim or to give, apart from Jesus. As he prepares for the horrific death that Jesus himself prophesied years earlier, he writes this letter as an exhortation to the church, reminding them (and us) to turn our back on all that is false, in and around us, and to pursue a true, deep, lasting knowledge of Jesus with all that we have.
