After reflecting on 2nd Peter chapter 1 for almost two months now I came up with the following outline for what we have shared thus far. The focus I would give this chapter is: Refreshing your memory of truth. I developed three points to amplify this focus: remind, reinforce, and reapply. Peter knew what these believers already knew and were firmly established in. He also knew from Old Testament history that we as God’s people are prone to forget what’s in our personal, spiritual data base. There’s a practical need to be reminded regularly of what we already know and have experienced. Then, what we know needs to be reinforced. Every year you add new details to your data base. If we’re not careful some new detail might distort what we know and have experienced. Care needs to be given to review the information and add new information that would enhance our knowledge and experience. Since God’s attributes are infinite, there is always more for us to learn about Him. And as the enemy attacks with new and subtle strategies our understanding of truth needs to be reinforced. Our experience in the battle for truth will reinforce our strength and commitment. Then, having been reminded and reinforced we need to reapply what we know to our daily regiment so that we will be able to stand, resist and impact those around us. We will become ambassadors of truth, love and peace. As darkness advances around us we need to open our minds and hearts to the light in God’s Word, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in our hearts.
