Today’s scripture: 2 Peter 1:16-18
I love these verses! I know I write that a lot, but there’s so much to love
about God’s word!
Peter tells us truth. Everything he writes is truth. He’s not relating folklore
or fairy tales. He’s sharing what he himself witnessed.
He was with Jesus during His earthly ministry. He was with Jesus, and watched
Him heal and bring life from death. He was with Jesus when He taught kingdom
He was with Jesus when the soldiers arrested Him. And with heart breaking,
Peter remembered denying knowing Jesus. And not being with his Master during
the horrific trial and execution.
But he experienced forgiveness, and he was with Jesus during His last days on
earth. He was with Jesus when the Father blessed the Son. He was there when
Jesus ascended into heaven.
Peter was with Jesus. So everything
he wrote was truth, based on fact. Based on his own experience. Based on his
eye-witness. We can trust what he writes. We can learn from his words. Because
