Sometimes, as we survey the sin and weakness inside our own hearts and the evil and brokenness around us, we are tempted to think that God has somehow sent us out on a journey without all the tools we need...a journey that is doomed to fail. Peter encourages us, however, with a reminder that God has given us all we need for life and godliness, in the knowledge of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Our job is to simply respond to this certain knowledge by doing all we can to know him more and allowing this growing knowledge to lead to greater faith, virtue, knowledge, self-control, steadfastness, godliness, brotherly affection and love.

ABOUT THIS SERIES: The Apostle Peter wrote the epistle (letter) we know as Second Peter, towards the end of his life, to an unspecified group of believers or churches. 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, lasgint knowledge of Jesus with all that we have.
