From Pastor Perry

09/02/2018 2 Peter 1:1-2

2 Peter 1:1–2 (ESV)

Greeting

1 Simeon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who have obtained a faith of equal standing with ours by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

 

Peter’s greeting identifies himself as a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ.  It is one thing to be an apostle.  An apostle is a God-appointed teacher and leader for the New Testament churches.  To be a servant is to be a “slave” to Christ.  He is to serve Christ and has been purchased with His blood on the cross.  Peter does not want to have a superior faith to that of the disciples but wants them to have a faith equal to his… he wants them to grow in faith.

 

I pray:  O Lord, help me to grow in your Word and faith.  Let your Word shape and mold me according to your will.  Amen.
