The followers of Christ live in interesting times. We tend to think that the threats to our faith come from the hostile world around us. Yet, the greatest threats to faith are from within the church itself from 2 Peter 1:1-2.
Part 2: Empowered For This Life
Too often, we feel helpless about the condition of our hearts as we try to live for Jesus Christ. Yet, many are surprised to find out that God has empowered us to live the spiritual life that he calls us to from 2 Peter 1:2-4.
Part 3: A Renewed Focus
It is easy to drift in your Christian Life. Before you know, you can find yourself losing your focus. A loss of focus often leads a person to turn their attention to the meaningless from 2 Peter 1:5-9.
Part 4: The Great Reward
Drifting in your spiritual life is usually a sign that you lack the proper motivation to continue on. The lack of motivation is often the direct result of not understanding what awaits every believer who has overcome from 2 Peter 1:10-11.
Part 5: The Refresher Course
Drifting is often the result of taking things for granted. Once truth is taken for granted, it is slowly forgotten from 2 Peter 1:12-15.
Part 6: This Is Real
It is easy for your faith to be simply a set of abstract beliefs. But the faith is really so much more from 2 Peter 1:16-21.
Part 7: The Enemy Within
Your faith is threatened by some who would distort your understanding of the gospel. Surprisingly, that threat comes from within the church from 2 Peter 2:1-3.
