Day 323: Journey Through the Bible in a Year
Focus Verses for Today: 2 Peter 2:10-21
Before reading, stop and pray, asking that the Lord provide understanding of 2 Peter 1-3. Read 2 Peter 1-3. Let’s journey!
Commentary: Although a short letter, Peter’s message is clear. A life for Christ results in changes in ourselves; we are no longer part of this world but separate from it. Peter also defends the truth of Jesus Christ and His resurrection. Peter witnessed the transfiguration of Jesus and saw the prophecies about the Messiah come to pass. He warns against false teachers and expounds upon the importance of thoroughly knowing God’s Word, as false teachers often use the truth and twist it to suit their purposes. We must scrutinize what we are taught to ensure that it aligns with God’s Word. Finally, Peter speaks of Christ’s second coming. It will happen, just as the prophets have foretold.
