Daily Bread 10/6/2022


    Daily Bread – October 6, 2022 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) 2 Peter 1:10 – On account of this brethren, instead be diligent to make your calling and election sure; for doing these things, you shall never stumble. Diligently Attending To Our Calling & Election Peter’s understanding of our calling and election by God could not be spelled out more clearly than it is in this Scripture. Certainly, there would have been no other apostle who would have understood the grace and election of God better than Peter (1 Peter 1:2, 2:9; Acts 2:39). Here in 2 Peter 1:5-10, he reveals the response each individual must have to the election of God: a willing and obedient heart – one that does not take for granted what God has done for us, but just the opposite – one that seizes the opportunity, and counts the riches of God as more valuable than all other things. The riches of His grace that have been given to us in this so great a salvation cannot be neglected – but rather diligently attended to (Hebrews 2:3, 6:11, 11:6). If we give ourselves to continually living in the conduct and behavior listed in verses 2 Peter 1:5-9, then a confirmation and security is supplied to us through the work of grace.
