“This is the post to which I’ve been assigned–keeping you alert with frequent reminders…” (2 Peter 1:12) And what shall I remind you of today? ;) Besides, that is, things like the previous verses–
So, friends, confirm God’s invitation to you, his choice of you. Don’t put it off; do it now. (2 Peter 1:10… He HAS chosen you to be reading this!)
The pastor’s reminder on Sunday was encouraging: that God can totally transform a life (2 Cor. 5:17) In fact, though we were supposed to be encouraged to think of our own lives being transformed, I thought of others’ lives. No, not the “sinful aspect” of their lives, but their circumstances. Look how our lives were “transformed” when we kind-of-suddenly discovered that we were moving! The idea too, is that you could find yourself able to do things that you never thought you could.
The trick, is to be open. And trusting. And patient!
