There is good news and bad news in the second chapter of Peter’s letter. Jody explores the contrast between these two realities in this second week of the COVID-19 quarantine.
The second “quarantine teaching” from 2 Peter.
For he received honor and glory from God the Father when these words from the Majestic Glory were spoken about him: “This is my Son, whom I love. I am pleased with him.” – 2 Peter 1:17
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Montavilla Women’s Bible Study will be done remotely for the next few weeks. This week’s study begins the second letter of Peter. The teaching is also available on Jody’s YouTube video podcast available under “Teaching” above. Stay healthy!
Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that at the proper time he may exalt you. Throw all your worry on him, because he cares for you. Be clear-minded and alert. Your opponent, the devil, is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Resist him and be firm in the faith … (1 Peter 5:6-9)
I appeal to the elders among you:
Be shepherds of God’s flock that is among you, watching over it, not because you must but because you want to, and not greedily but eagerly, as God desires. Do not lord it over the people entrusted to you, but be examples to the flock.
The reality of trials and suffering. What does it mean to experience these as Jesus did.
