After Peter encourages us to not lose sight of Jesus, and to make growing in the knowledge of him our top priority, he goes on to remind us that we never move past the basics. God's Word must remain the ultimate authority in our lives and the certainty of the return of Jesus must stir in us an urgency to know Him and to follow Him. We can't trust our hearts or our intellect. We can't trust in good circumstances or "fate". But we can trust in God's Word and in our returning Savior.

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.
