Reading in 2 Peter 1:12-21, the purpose for Peter writing this letter is to remind us of the truth. We gain spiritual knowledge from Scripture which was spoken from God and carried along by the Holy Spirit. Preparation is the key as we answer questions we have and help anyone who is seeking a relationship with Christ.
Christianity is different than other religions in that we have eyewitnesses to the events that occurred while Jesus walked on earth and the events are documented in the Word. The prophecies were fulfilled and the facts prove that God became flesh; teaching us the best way to live. God’s plan was fulfilled and He will continue to carry out His plan.
As we drive down the road of life, we understand that we go on green and stop on red but we struggle with the simple message of the gospel; thinking it can’t be this easy. What happens is that many make it harder than it is and end up going the wrong direction.
By gaining knowledge from the Bible, from life experiences, and from others we will produce a road map to help us follow the way. The pathway set before us leads to that which is pure and good and lovely. Like a light in a sometimes dark world, the pathway will be illuminated through each of us.
This day with God, let us pray for God’s direction as we plan the right activities for our day and that these activities fall into place for an amazing day.
