2 Peter 2
Passionate pleas of Peter fill this chapter. There are strong words of warning to those who have come to know the Lord, yet are subject to the arrogance and lawlessness of the proud. Pride pits itself against the Lord. It seeks to soak others with its poison, dragging its victims away from the truth. We are reminded of what happened to the fallen angels.
Watch the company you keep. While not being tempted to deny faith outright, reflect upon how the media often work us over—those whose values and motives hardly come from a devotional attachment to the Word of Life.
Is there anything or anyone undermining your faith?
Following Your path for me v. 15
I the servant of the Lord v. 19
Knowing the ways of justice v. 21
Due to an early Easter in 2013, weeks 7 and 8 from the Epiphany Season, which were omitted, are now added to the first two weeks at the beginning of the season of Pentecost. The Monday-to-Friday readings for this week are from the Seventh Week in Epiphany, Year C.
See “Solar and Sacred Seasons” in the menu above.
Thursdays are dedicated to the New Testament, except the Gospels.
The Firestarters and readings are posted in the timezone UTC+12, so that they are available in New Zealand and other regions near the International Date Line.
