2 Peter 1:8-15 – Don’t Forget

[2 Peter 1:8-15 ESV] For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to confirm your calling and election, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall. For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have. I think it right, as long as I am in this body, to stir you up by way of reminder, since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me. And I will make every effort so that after my departure you may be able at any time to recall these things.

Call to Worship – #755 Psalm 24:1-6

1 The earth is the Lord’s
and the fullness thereof,
the world and thosewho dwell therein;
2 for God has founded it upon the seas,
and established it upon the rivers.
3 Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
And who shall stand
in God’s holy place?
4 Those who have clean hands
and pure hearts,
who do not lift up their souls
to what is false,
and do not swear deceitfully.
5 They will receive blessing from the Lord,
and vindication
from the God of their salvation.
6 Such is the generation of those
who seek the Lord,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob.
