It would be naive of me to think for a second that everyone that takes the time to read my posts is saved. Fact is there are people that believe in God, but not in Jesus not fully recognizing the only way to the Father is through the Son (John 14:6). Let me insert: the premise of this post is not to incite debate, but rather to highlight an acutely obvious point.
TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION!
This world is not going to get better and according to the Bible, it’s going to get worse. If you don’t know Jesus, it’s
not too late …..yet. The day is coming when you’re going to wish you would have believed and received Him as your
Lord and Savior.
In Peter’s second letter he encouraged his readers back then and us today pursue spiritual maturity through the Word of God as a remedy for false teaching and a right response to heretics in light of Christ’s promised second coming (2 Peter 1:3, 16).
Peter wrote his second letter because the churches of Asia Minor were not just struggling with the persecution and suffering addressed in Peter’s first letter; they also had strife and dissension within their own ranks. Therefore, in an effort to stem the tide of heresy and false teaching among the Christians, Peter emphasized the importance of learning and clinging to the proper knowledge of God.
Like Peter, I encourage you (and myself) to apply yourselves to acquiring the true knowledge of God and living out the life of faith with “all diligence,” so that you too may “be found by [Jesus] in peace, spotless and blameless” (1:5; 3:14).
Fortunately, if you are reading this message today it not too late and the kicker is you’re not waiting on God, He is waiting on you. 2 Peter 3:9 says, “God is patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.”
