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.

2 Peter 1:12-18

12Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. 13Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; 14Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. 15Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance. 16For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 18And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. (KJV)
