Greetings from Peter

1This letter is from Simon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ. I am writing to you who share the same precious faith we have. This faith was given to you because of the justice and fairness of Jesus Christ, our God and Savior.G4826G4074G1401G2532G652G2424G5547G2975G2472G4102G2254G1722G1343G2316G2532G2257G4990G2424G5547 2May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.G5485G2532G1515G4129G5213G1722G1922G2316G2532G2424G2257G2962

Growing in Faith

3By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.G5613G846G2304G1411G1433G2254G3956G4314G2222G2532G2150G1223G1922G2564G2248G1223G1391G2532G703 4And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world's corruption caused by human desires.G1223G3739G1433G2254G3176G2532G5093G1862G2443G1223G5130G1096G2844G2304G5449G668G5356G1722G2889G1722G1939 5In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God's promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge,G2532G1161G846G5124G3923G3956G4710G2023G1722G5216G4102G703G1161G1722G703G1108 6and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness,G1161G1722G1108G1466G1161G1722G1466G5281G1161G1722G5281G2150 7and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.G1161G1722G2150G5360G1161G1722G5360G26 8The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.G1063G5023G5225G5213G2532G4121G2525G3756G692G3761G175G1519G1922G2257G2962G2424G5547 9But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins.G1063G3739G3361G3918G5023G2076G5185G3467G3024G2983G2512G846G3819G266 10So, dear brothers and sisters, work hard to prove that you really are among those God has called and chosen. Do these things, and you will never fall away.G1352G3123G80G4704G4160G5216G2821G2532G1589G949G1063G4160G5023G4218G4417G3364G4218G4417 11Then God will give you a grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.G1063G3779G1529G2023G5213G4146G1519G166G932G2257G2962G2532G4990G2424G5547

Paying Attention to Scripture

12Therefore, 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.G1352G272G3756G272G5279G5209G104G5279G4012G5130G2539G1492G2532G4741G1722G3918G225 13And it is only right that I should keep on reminding you as long as I live.G1161G2233G1342G1909G3745G1510G1722G5129G4638G1326G5209G1326G1722G5280 14For our Lord Jesus Christ has shown me that I must soon leave this earthly life,G1492G3754G5031G2076G595G3450G4638G2532G2531G2257G2962G2424G5547G1213G3427 15so I will work hard to make sure you always remember these things after I am gone.G1161G2532G4704G5209G2192G3326G1699G1841G4160G5130G1539G3420 16For we were not making up clever stories when we told you about the powerful coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We saw his majestic splendor with our own eyesG1063G1811G3756G1811G4679G3454G1107G5213G1411G2532G3952G2257G2962G2424G5547G235G1096G2030G1565G3168 17when he received honor and glory from God the Father. The voice from the majestic glory of God said to him, "This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy."G1063G2983G3844G2316G3962G5092G2532G1391G5342G5107G5456G846G5259G3169G1391G3778G2076G3450G27G5207G1519G3739G1473G2106 18We ourselves heard that voice from heaven when we were with him on the holy mountain.G2532G5026G5456G5342G1537G3772G2249G191G5607G4862G846G1722G40G3735 19Because of that experience, we have even greater confidence in the message proclaimed by the prophets. You must pay close attention to what they wrote, for their words are like a lamp shining in a dark place - until the Day dawns, and Christ the Morning Star shines in your hearts.G2192G2532G949G3056G4397G3739G4160G2573G4337G5613G3088G5316G1722G850G5117G2193G3739G2250G1306G2532G5459G393G1722G5216G2588 20Above all, you must realize that no prophecy in Scripture ever came from the prophet's own understanding,G1097G5124G4412G3754G3756G3956G4394G1124G1096G2398G1955 21or from human initiative. No, those prophets were moved by the Holy Spirit, and they spoke from God.G1063G4394G5342G3756G4218G2307G444G235G40G444G2316G2980G5342G5259G40G4151
