A Divine Reminder - Thursday, July 19th 2012
2 Peter 1:12-13
"Therefore, I will always remind you about these things-even though you already know them and are standing firm in the truth you have been taught. And it is only right that I should keep on reminding you as long as I live."
Nearing the end of his life, the apostle Peter continued to sound the alarm for believers. In the book of 2 Peter, he spends a lot of time warning against false teachers while also reminding believers to not forget the life-changing power of the Gospel. In fact, in the verses above, Peter mentions his desire to remind the church three different times. Why would Peter be so passionate about reminding believers about the Truth? We forget.
As Christians, our lives have been changed by our faith in Jesus. In God's sight, we are perfect. While here on earth, we are growing more and more like Jesus every day, yet we are still human. We still allow doubts to creep in. We battle with forgetting about God's goodness, His love and His power. This is why we need a constant reminder. This is why reading the Bible and being in church regularly are vital to the believer. We need to constantly be reminded of God and His precious promises.
Life Lesson: Meditate on the Gospel and God's Word DAILY.
Thank You for Your goodness and grace. This morning, I ask afresh for Your Holy Spirit to fill me up and give me the power to live for You. Father, use Your Word, Your Spirit and other believers as reminders of Your goodness and Your love for me. Also, help me to be a reminder to others of Who You are. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Living to tell what He died to say,
