It’s All About The Math (II Peter 1)

Janette and I have visited Kennedy Space Center (NASA) a couple of times while in Florida.  Each time I was awestruck at the amazing feat these engineers accomplished.  Those early launches in the 60’s were not done by a bunch of guys with Ph.D’s (doctorates).  They were really just “math geeks” with crew cuts and a pocket protector full of mechanical pencils.  When they put the pencil to the paper they came up with solutions to how to get a man to the moon and back.  They just focused on the math and did absolutely magnificent things. 

 

In this chapter of 2nd Peter we find the math problem that gives us true success in our life. It does not use algebra or geometry.  It is a simple addition problem.  Add virtue to faith, then add knowledge to that sum.  Take that answer and add temperance.  Don’t stop yet because the answer you really need takes patience.  So add that in.  Keep on adding godliness, brotherly kindness and the answer appears!  There it is.....LOVE.  The Word of God says we must love the Lord with all our being and we must do the same for those around us.  Most of the time it seems harder than getting to the moon.

God’s Faithful Promise

II Peter 3 April 28, 2018 Such beautiful and encouraging words Peter has for the Church here in his epistles.  Yet the crowning jewel, the final epitaph, he wishes to leave with his readers in chapter 3 is so simple yet so powerful. How could someone such as this great Apostle sum up the theme of his entire life and ministry?  How ca...

Beware

II Peter 2 April 27, 2018 Just as Peter felt impressed to encourage the flock of God in their steadfast faith, here in chapter 2 of his second epistle, he also feels the pressing weight to alert the flock of impending peril.  The Lord has revealed to Peter that his remaining time on earth is drawing to a close (1:14), so he endeavors to arm hi...

Whoa!

II Peter 1 April 26, 2018 "Whoa!"  That's my response every time I read this opening chapter of Peter's second epistle to the Church.  For anyone who might feel down or discouraged today.  For every believer who might be struggling with their self image, and feeling like a failure instead of a conqueror, just read this chap...
