“I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles.” 2 Peter 3:2 NIV
Peter specifies two particular things he wants the readers to think about and to remember. First, Peter reminds them of the words spoken by the holy prophets in the past. These words are the Old Testament. Second, Peter reminds them of the words, the commands, of the Lord Jesus relayed through the apostles. These words are the New Testament. While Peter is specifically addressing the issue of the second coming of the Lord which the false teachers were distorting, it is important that the believers remember all Scripture.
Lord Jesus, fill my mind and life with Your Word, the Bible. Let me recall and think on the Scriptures as I go through my day.
