In Your Bible: 2 Peter 3:18
Peter (as did Jude) reminds believers in the church not to accept false teaching. Then he encourages believers to remain steadfast in the true teaching from the disciples. This letter ends with praise to our almighty God.
Mature in Christ
Peter tells believers, . . . grow [spiritually mature] in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory (honor, majesty, splendor), both now and to the day of eternity. Amen (2 Peter 3:18 AMP).
An ancient manuscript originally in Aramaic from the Syriac Bible * greatly amplifies our key verse (2 Peter 3:18)—Peter’s doxology:
. . . to him [be] glory, both now, and forever; or “to the day of eternity”; that is, to Christ, who is truly God, or otherwise such a doxology would not belong to him, be ascribed the glory of deity, of all divine perfections; the glory of all his offices and work as Mediator; the glory of man’s salvation; and the glory of all that grace, and the growth of it, together with the knowledge of himself, which saints have from him; and that both in this world, and that which is to come. Amen; so be it
Sometimes we look for profound words to worship our Lord, its’ best to just let it flow. This letter Peter writes, rightfully ends with praise to our almighty God.
Prayer: Father, you are full of wonder, amazing deeds, and overflowing in benevolent grace to me. I praise you. Alleluiah.
