God never fails and makes salvation full of incredible experiences. When Christ inspired Apostle Peter to show the faithful a way of adding value to their faith (2 Peter 1:5-7) it opened the door to an eternal understanding of Jesus’ ministry. Everything a believer needs to know is made available. Because God takes care of the faithful and Peter’s message sheds truth on His integrity.
The greatest revelation of Peter’s good news comes in his closing truths.
“For so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” (2 Peter 1-11).
God’s truths speak volumes and in this scripture, we understand our spiritual stability comes from adding to our faith. When we show Christ our loyalty then we find a passageway into an infinite security so strong nothing can close its door. And for us to receive a constant flow of this undeniable truth we need to continue growing our faith.
God loves faithful people, and He opens the gateway to a never ending relationship with Christ. This incredible reality comes from our willingness to glorify God by channeling our lives over to Christ’s sovereignty. And God never stops shedding His grace on those who live in Christ’s body.
Thinking over God’s promise of an eternal relationship with Christ inspires us to give God our best efforts. Christ wants us to live in His kingdom, and this remarkable unity keeps us coming back. Receiving God’s charitable gifts (Isaiah 58:11) comes from growing our trust in Christ. And this helps us live holy in an ungrateful world.
The best way to understand how significant Christ is to salvation we need to look back in Biblical times. Our ancient ancestors of the Old Testament relied on Prophets and Prophetess to teach them God’s commandments. God had them carry out sacrifices to connect them with His Spirit. God used several Prophets to show His plan for Christ. Once God brought Christ from heaven a new way of receiving salvation emerged. Today we are included in God’s new covenant.
God delivered Christ to the Jews and after Jesus’ death, resurrection and ascension made His Son the way to heaven. The Lord simplified salvation, opened it up to everyone on earth (Jew and Gentile) and now wants to keep the door to Christ wide open. And to receive God’s promise of having a never-ending bond with Christ means building a faith full of action.
Now that Peter has shown us God’s generous offerings for adding Christian principles then we understand the room for more growth. It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned veteran or new believer. God has commanded us to keep growing, and Christ will give us the strength to continue adding Christian value. By placing Christ as our top priority and nurturing our faith we can’t go wrong because God’s rewards make it well worth the effort.
