2 Peter 1v12-18

The Olympic marathon was happening on the day of this sermon. Not all who started training for it made it to the start. Not all who start will finish. Some will find the cost, the pain and the challenge too much for them. Perhaps some got distracted by other concerns in life – money, business or family. They will therefore have no chance of winning the prize. It is the same in the Christian life. Some begin with a profession of faith, and hope to arrive in glory. But later, they are
nowhere – they are not even in the race at all any more. Peter knew that. One of the dangers was that false teachers would lead believers away, tempting them into an uncontrolled life of sin. He wrote this letter to encourage us to hold on, to avoid the temptations, and to finish the race well.
