SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK

2 PETER 1:10 "WHEREFORE THE RATHER, BRETHREN, GIVE DILIGENCE TO MAKE YOUR CALLING AND ELECTION SURE: FOR IF YE DO THESE THINGS, YE SHALL NEVER FALL:"
     In this great verse, Peter is explaining to us the benefit of continual Christian growth. If you take time to read the previous nine verses before you will see that he builds up to the truth we find in verse ten. In this age of story after story about men and women who have fallen, this verse is a reminder that what we see trending in many churches is not the will of God. We should all realize that we have a fleshly nature and even though we are saved we are not exempt from committing a sin. With this in mind Peter gives us an outline for "fireproofing" our walk with the Lord in these verses. If any child of God falls and destroys their testimony we can rest assured that somewhere they have deviated from the warning in the Word of God.

How To Forbear Failure

2) Remember our provisions vs 3-4

  - the direction of purity vs 3
  - the definite promises vs 4
3) Remember our progression vs 5-7
  - God desires addition vs 5
  - God desires attributes vs 6-7
4) Remember our possibility vs 8-9
  - to become barren vs 8
  - to become blind vs 9
  - to become backslid vs 9
5) Remember our persistence vs 10-11
  - in diligence vs 10
  - in development vs 10
  - in delight vs 11
