Trustworthy and True
Today's reading: 2 Peter 1:16-21
God and His Word are trustworthy, and true was the message that came across loud and clear to me as I took in 2 Peter 1:16-21. I love how Peter makes sure we know that what he and the apostles are teaching and conveying is the result being with Jesus while He was on earth ("but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty..." vs. 12), and that every part of God's Word--every phrase, sentence, chapter, Book--is from God. "For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit" (vs. 21).
How does knowing that Peter was an eyewitness to Jesus' teaching and miracles, as well as His death and resurrection, impact your mindset, approach and confidence in God's Word? Tami
