Good morning y’all. We looking at 2 Peter chapter 2 today. This chapter focuses on false prophets and the future that awaits them. Also gives hope for those who are living godly in the midst of all these evil that God is able to rescue them.
Holyspirit we thank you in advance for the truth you will reveal to us in the word today. We ask you open our eyes to see, our ears to hear and our hearts to perceive today. Amen.
Here we go 🙂
S – Scriptures that stood out for me
2 Peter 2:9 NLT – So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment.
2 Peter 2:15 NLT – They have wandered off the right road and followed the footsteps of Balaam son of Beor, who loved to earn money by doing wrong.
2 Peter 2:19 NLT – They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you.
O1) There will always be false prophets to lead people astray hence why we need to be matured in our knowledge of God so we don’t fall into their traps.
O2) Even though there is so much evil and ungodliness around us, God says he knows how to rescue his own. So let’s be encouraged today and trust God.
O3) There is a day of reckoning for teachers of evil and those that blaspheme God
O4) God doesn’t condone sin. He gives loads of opportunities for people to repent and those that choose not to repent meet with their punishment. He would rather offer forgiveness than punishment. The choice is ours to make.
O5) When we wander off the path of God, we become susceptible to evil….the false prophets wandered off the right road…. Remember, Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. We won’t wander off if we stay connected to the Way – Jesus.
O6) We are slaves to whatever we are controlled by / addicted to.
A – Application
Today lets ask the Holyspirit to reveal to us areas in our lives where we have wandered off Gods path. Let’s make necessary amends to get back on the right path.
P – Prayer
Dear Lord we thank you for the gift of today. Thank you for what we have learned in your word. We ask for forgiveness for all the times we have wandered away from you. Today we ask your Holyspirit will reveal the areas where we have fallen short and help us get back on the right path. We thank you for the freedom we have in you and we pray we do not get ourselves entangled and enslaved with sin again as you have set us free from it. We love you Lord. May you always be the object of our affection. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Thanks for reading and I believe you have been blessed. Feel free to leave comments and share your thoughts on the chapter.
Update on my challenge yesterday – I had the opportunity to indulge in gossiping and backbiting in the office but thank God I managed to not join the discussion. It took a loooooooot to not comment but Thank you Jesus :). It’s all about the small victories 🙂
Stay blessed and have a wonderful day.
Remember, you are a slave to whatever you are addicted to…what are you addicted to today?
