“This is now, beloved, the second letter I am writing to you in which I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder, that you should remember the words spoken beforehand by the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior spoken by your apostles” (2 Peter 3:1-2).
There are those who, by all appearances, appear to be engaged, but are not. They nod their heads, but they have not heard. Do not be as those who are not involved in daily seeking the Lord’s will. Instead, do all you can and remember the words spoken about His will that you may be prepared for whatever may come in your life. The Lord died so that you might have the opportunity to live with Him.
Lord, help me to remember what You have said to me through Your Word. Help me to continue to grow daily in Your admonition. Let me not play the game of just being a church member, but truly be a part of Your body. Guide me, Lord of All, in the way of everlasting life. Let me know what You have given me to know and to believe what You have opened my heart to believe. In all things, lead me according to Your will.
Lord Jesus, You did not die so that I could feel good about myself. You did not die to let me off the hook. You died so that I could live true life in You according to Your eternal purpose. Lead me, O Lord, in the way You have established. Guide me according to Your purposes so that I would truly learn to obey willingly all that You have commanded. Teach me how to learn and then teach me how to live. Amen.
