2 Peter 1: 1 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ,
To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours: 2 Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord
It seems like a long way from the Peter of the boat and the doubt, betrayal and conviction to the humble man who penned the opening statement of this second general letter to the churches extant at the time. He was writing to encourage them, and he was encouraged himself by the knowledge he had gained by walking in faith and in trusting the Lord for every outcome.
How many of us can say we really trust Jesus even unto death? How many of us actually accept the idea of our eternal life in Christ. Some days it’s really hard. While Peter is not unique in his martyrdom, he is an example of unyielding faith. I need that kind of faith every day it seems. In this adventure of writing I expected everything, except what seems to be the relative silence of my readers. I do not write for the sake fo controversy, but I would enjoy hearing from those who take the time to really read and pray about issues that might be raised as a result of these little bits of “spotlighting”. I would love to pray with you.
