The Bible is the Word of God (2 Peter 1:5-21)Simon Twist, January 12, 2020
Part of the What we still believe (Summer 2020) series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
In our series on things we still believe in 2020, Simon examines why the bible is the most important book in the world and why we trust it.
|« Our God is Love||None|
2 Peter 1:5–21 (Listen)
5 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, 7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. 8 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. 9 For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. 10 Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to confirm your calling and election, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall. 11 For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
12 Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have. 13 I think it right, as long as I am in this body, to stir you up by way of reminder, 14 since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me. 15 And I will make every effort so that after my departure you may be able at any time to recall these things.
16 For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For when he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased,” 18 we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain. 19 And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, 20 knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation. 21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
The Muster is an event for the men of Campbelltown Anglican Churches to set or reset their strength in the Lord together. The inaugural Muster in 2019 will begin with a fireside chat and meal. Arrive when you can from your duties of the week and we’ll enjoy a stew and diy damper. We’ll arise early on Saturday morning for a devotion, breakfast, some bible talks and a workshop. There will be plenty of time to chat and chill. The whole event will conclude after lunch on Saturday in order to return home and get ready for church the next day.
Tickets for The 2019 Muster are now closed. Please contact the church office for more details.
