Sermon Notes

You can tell as you read his writings that Peter had the heart of a pastor. Jesus had commanded Peter, “Feed my sheep.” He instructed Peter, “and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.” In this last letter that Peter wrote, he knew that his time to die was coming soon and he wanted to remind the believers to keep growing in grace and knowledge by diligently adding to their faith Christ-like character.
In 2 Peter 1:10-15, Peter mentions three blessings that continual spiritual growth brings. When we are growing in grace, we can have full assurance of our salvation. We can look forward to a wonderful entrance into heaven, without regrets. We are protected against spiritual amnesia by a continual remembrance of the truth.
