2 Pet. 1:5-12
We are back in a familiar text. Something like singing the same songs over and over. Different emphasis, different purpose. We have sought to think about knowledge, we have studied Scripture as a theme/topic. Tonight we focus on Peter's salvation words.
Memory is a wonderful thing. How dull would be life without memory. How dangerous. We must cultivate spiritual memories. Memory is what keeps us from having to make literally 1000s of decisions every day. Tradition keeps us from having to redecide every issue every time. Memory is not bad. Tradition is not bad ("Fiddler on the Roof"). We must remember. We must go forward building upon the foundations of the past.
I. Don't forget the fact of salvation, 1:5-15
II. Don't forget the power of salvation, 1:16-18
III. Don't forget the source/surety of salvation, 1:19-21
