2 Peter 1:10 Therefore my brothers (Greek adelphoi ,meaning both male and female) be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure.(NIV)
Sometimes those of a Wesleyan turn of mind theologically are accused of never really being sure of whether or not they are saved. The ages p; argument between the various arguments notwithstanding, there is yet in scripture the advice (command?) given rather sternly in 2 Peter to press in to the matter of being certain that you are referring and deferring to Jesus in all things. It is very easy to put the matter of our faith in to a sort of “cruise control”, to plod along sometimes aimlessly in the presumption that everything okay. Would it not be better to be in constant conversation with the Lord and Master of the universe in both big moments and small? I am reminded of the text from Johnathan Edwards famous sermon of the eighteenth century, Sinners in the hands of an angry God. Deuteronomy 32: 35 To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
