Peter encouraged believers to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus. He said that maturing in our faith prepares us for Christ’s return. The apostle wanted Jesus to come back and find believers living in peace and righteousness. Peter viewed spiritual growth as a defense against teaching that incorrectly interprets God’s Word and leads people astray.
Even when we feel discouraged and disconnected from God, we can remember that He will help us advance in our faith by making us more like His Son. His Word assures us that He who has begun a good work in us will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.
Dear God, I invite Your Holy Spirit
To mould me into the person You want me to be
Empower me to keep reaching for
The holiness I see in Jesus.
Spiritual growth requires the solid food of God’s word.
