Grace and Peace

From Series: Growing In Grace

2 Peter 1:1-4  (ID: 2287)

Most of us are interested in knowing how to be a better person. Sometimes our reasons are good, and at other times they are misguided. In this message, Alistair Begg leads us through the foundational Gospel principles that open Peter’s second letter. It is through God’s grace alone that we can be reconciled to Him and receive His promised help to live godly lives.


Greeting

1Simeon1 Peter, a servant2 and apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who have obtained a faith of equal standing with ours by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:

2May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

Confirm Your Calling and Election

3His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to3 his own glory and excellence,4 4by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.
