TOPIC: make your call and election sure

READ: 2 Peters 1:5-11

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;

and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;

and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.

For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble,

And you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Peter is speaking most clearly the those who seem to avoid commitment to Christlike living, while still claiming their place in God’s family. This is unproductive at best and dangerous at worst. Instead, Peter tells the reader to be diligent to demonstrate spiritually mature qualities ,as confidence-boosters and evidence of their security in Christ.

God is the One who calls and elects, so the believers calling and election are already “sure” from God’s point of view. Therefore, the command for believers to diligently make their calling and election sure must refer to the believers’ point of view.

God wants us to have assurance of our salvation, and the best way to do that is by pursuing godly virtues and actively growing in the Christian life.

Those qualities listed in verses 5-9; are “things” in verse 10, and the reader is urged thereby to “make your calling and election sure.” In doing “these things” one will never stumble and is promised “a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom” (verse 11).

It is clear that Peter presumes that his readers have already exercised faith and that these qualities are to be added to their faith. These same virtues allow believers to participate in the divine nature and thus distinguish themselves as a holy people. Ensure that you grow in knowledge of Jesus and His grace everyday.
