2 Peter 1v3-11 - Make your calling and election sure (with Luo translation)

Adobe Acrobat

Peter saw a great challenge for the Christians reading his letter. 2:1 tells us that there were many false teachers. They changed God's truth – and they lived ungodly lives, e.g. 2:10. Those two things always go together. Those who destroy God's foundation of truth also destroy the house of godly living. It is the same today – false teachers lead Christians away into sin. We need to lay a better foundation. To stop the Christians being led away, Peter taught them the truth about Christian growth, in this passage. They had begun by believing, and coming to know God (1:1-2). Now they need to know how to continue the Christian life the safe, true way.

2 Peter 1:3-11

3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. (KJV)
