2 Peter 1 - Summary

Outline - add love

v1
greetings
v2-3
everything we need to live, and to live a godly life, through the knowing of Him
v4
escaping temptation by His promises
v5-11
things that we need to have abundantly in us
v12-15
remind people of the important things while we can, and don't take for granted that we'll have more time
v16-21
the Bible was written by God, not cleverly contrived by humans, and the apostles are witnesses (v16)

Key
v7

And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

The final thing on this list that Peter says we should add to our lives, is charity (love). Like Peter, we should care about the people we have witnessed to, and have the love to try to follow up with them and help them grow in the Lord.

Application

v12
Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know [them], and be established in the present truth.

I'll set apart a time to go through my notes and look up contact information for people to follow up with.
