- Read 2 Peter 3:14. As Christians, we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth. What are you looking forward to regarding heaven? How often do you think about going to heaven?
- Read 2 Peter 3:14; Philippians 2:12. These verses tell us to “make every effort…” and to “work out your salvation”. What role does your effort play in making you holy and spotless? What are we “doing” to make an effort; what are we working out (surrender, self-discipline, etc.)?
- Read 2 Peter 3:9,15. How does God’s patience mean salvation? What is the implication for the non-believer and the believer?
- Read 2 Peter 3:15-16. Why is it important that the Apostle Peter gave support to Paul’s writings in the New Testament?
- Read 2 Peter 3:17. What false teaching have you been tempted to believe? How did you determine it was false?
- Spend time in prayer, thanking God for His Word and the promised return of Christ.
