I. Who We Are II. What We Have Been Given III. What We Ought to Be 2 Peter 1:1a [NASB95] 1 Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, (doulos) 2 Peter 1:1a [NASB95] 1 Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, (doulos) - Inalienably possessed by Jesus Christ. - Unqualifiedly at the disposal of Jesus Christ. - Owing an unquestioning obedience to Jesus Christ. - Constantly in the service of Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:1b [NASB95] 1… To those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ:  2 Corinthians 5:21 [NASB95] 21He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. Luke 6:46 [NASB95] 46“Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 2 Peter 1:2-4 [NASB95] 2Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord;  3seeing that His divine power **has granted to us** everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.  4For by these **He has granted to** us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9a) I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13) The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. (Psalm 23:1) 2 Peter 2:1-2 [NASB95] 1But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. 2Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; Romans 8:31-32 [NASB95] 31What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?  32He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? 2 Peter 1:2-4 [NASB95] 2Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord;  3seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.  4For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. 2 Peter 3:13 [NASB95] 13But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. Knowledge of God - Grace and peace… in the knowledge of God (1:2) - Through the true knowledge of Him… (1:3) - and in your moral excellence, knowledge … and in your knowledge (1:5-6) - …nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord (1:8) - We made known to you… (1:16) - But know this first of all… (1:20) - …escaped… by the knowledge of the Lord (2:20) - Know this first of all… (3:3) - …knowing this beforehand, be on your guard (3:17) 2 Peter 3:18 [NASB95] 18but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. John 17:3 [NASB95] 3“This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. 2 Peter 3:13 [NASB95] 13But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. 2 Peter 3:7,10 [NASB95] 7But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 10But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. 2 Peter 3:11,14-15a [NASB95] 11Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 14Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless,  15and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; 2 Peter 1:5-7 [NASB95] 5Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge,  6and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness,  7and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. Be it in a quiet pasture or by a gentle sream The shepherd of my soul is by my side Should I face a mighty mountain or a valley dark and deep The shepherd of my soul will be my guide
