Slave of Jesus
Apostleship carried weight and authority. Yet, Peter identified himself first as a slave of Jesus Christ. How would your life change if you first identified as a slave of Jesus Christ?

The Divine Nature
Nature determines 1) appetite, 2) acquaintances, 3) behavior. For example these are very different for a fish than for a lion. The divine nature that has been placed in us changes everything about us!

Sanctification
Sanctification is a progressive growth to become more like Jesus and it is the best protection against false doctrine.

Progress of Our Faith
For this very reason,
make every effort to supplement your faith
with virtue,
and virtue with knowledge,
and knowledge with self- control,
and self- control with steadfastness,
and steadfastness with godliness,
and godliness with brotherly affection,
and brotherly affection with love.
Ground
For if these qualities are yours
If
and are increasing,
[then] they keep you from being ineffective
Then
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.
Inference
Protrection of Our Faith
Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent
to confirm your calling and election,
for if you practice these qualities
[then] 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 ... to remind you
of these qualities,
Content
though you know them and
Concessive
are established
in the truth that you have.
Sphere
Explanation
as long as I am in this body,
I think it right, ... to stir you up
by way of reminder,
since I know
of my body
that the putting off ... will be soon,
as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me.
And I will make every effort
Action
after my departure
at any time
so that ... you may be able ... to recall these things.
Apostle's Testimony
cleverly devised
For we did not follow ... myths
when we made known to you
Jesus' Coming Glory
the power and
coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,
but we were eyewitnesses
Peter, James & John
of his majesty.
For when he received honor and
Transfiguration (Matthew 17; Mark 9)
glory
from God the Father,
and the voice was borne to him
by the Majestic Glory,
beloved
“This is my ... Son,
with whom I am well pleased,”
we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven,
for we were with him
on the holy mountain.
Prophet's Testimony
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,
knowing this first of all,
that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation.
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.
