Trustworthy and True

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: 2 Peter 1:16-21

God and His Word are trustworthy, and true was the message that came across loud and clear to me as I took in 2 Peter 1:16-21. I love how Peter makes sure we know that what he and the apostles are teaching and conveying is the result being with Jesus while He was on earth ("but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty..." vs. 12), and that every part of God's Word--every phrase, sentence, chapter, Book--is from God. "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" (vs. 21).

How does knowing that Peter was an eyewitness to Jesus' teaching and miracles, as well as His death and resurrection, impact your mindset, approach and confidence in God's Word? Tami

Knowing Peter is an eyewitness guides my approach to His motivation and purpose for writing. By now, he's writing to people who hadn't been around when Christ was on the scene, both commending their faith and providing guidance and encouragement.

It encourages and excites me.
