2 Peter 1:1-15: A global view of the Christian life
September 17, 2021

Living in God's Favor

Today's passage, 2 Peter 1:1-15, may be overwhelming. Again, send questions if you need to.

Verses 3 and 4 are an amazing description of what it means to be saved/born again. This is what we receive from God in his favor because of believing that Jesus is Lord and being buried in baptism.

Verses 5-7 are our part. Verses 3-4 are what God has given in response to your repentance & faith, and 5-7 are what you work towards and grow in.

Verses 8-11 are the warnings and rewards that are associated with following or not following Jesus' teachings through his apostles.

Verses 12-15 don't need explanation.

Keep this week's and last week's teaching (https://www.rebuildingthefoundations.org/Bible_Studies-in-gods-favor.html). They are global truths that you will always need to be reminded of. Then, next week, Lord willing, we will start learning the general outline of God's plan of salvation from the beginning.
