“And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.” 2 Peter 1:15 NIV
Notice the urgency and fervency in Peter’s words. He was determined to diligently make every effort, to endeavor with all his might, that the believers would remember the truths of the gospel. He knew his life was coming to a close, and he would soon depart this world for heaven. He desperately wanted the believers to know and to stand firm on the truths of God’s Word. What do you passionately want to share with others?
Lord Jesus, fill my life with scripture so that I may stand firm on the truths of the Bible. Help me to urgently and fervently share the gospel with others.
