We join Pastor David Crespo in 2nd Peter today as we continue the second part of a message that he’s titled, “Be Sure” We learn from God’s word how to be sure that not only are we saved, but that we can have the assurance that we are saved as believers in Christ. Let’s listen in!
2 Peter 1:5-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
Fruitful Growth in the Faith
5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control [a]perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither [b]barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
a. 2 Peter 1:6 patience
b. 2 Peter 1:8 useless
