1. Peter assumes his readers are believers, not merely professing believers. 2. Peter is discussing sanctification, not justification. 3. Peter says those who make their calling and election sure will never fall, not prove or guarantee their salvation 4. Peter s theme is perseverance that results in reward, not perseverance unto eternal life.

pastor Ryan Sheppard's comment on 2014-10-04 08:43:42:
God instructs we who believe on Jesus for salvation to do our utmost to be Christian which entails FIRST studying God 's Word for all tha we can do to super please our Beautiful Saviour and Lord Jesus. Does it super please God to share God 's simple plan of salvation? Without question sharing the good news of the gospel of Jesus super pleases God so go and do so with all your heart. Does it super please God to say no to all worldliness, corruption and tyranny? Obviously, then say no to any and all worldliness with all your being and coint it all joy when you share the gospel with EVERYONE YOU MEET, count it all joy saying no to sin, count it all joy when seeking to love and care for others doing all unto our Lord Jesus. Any Christian who 's satisfied with less than an all out effort to share the gospel and be the best they can for God is going to be a poor example for others to follow and like a ship sitting stagnantly for years in the same location barnacles and other corruptions will attach and will become an unprofitable servant at best. God blessed us with life and breathe in order to invite us all into a grace a thon wherein like any thon we 're to be willing EVEN eager to not leave any stone unturned in an all out effort to super bless the very heart of God making extra thoroughly certain we 're not neglecting to do everything to touch the very heart of God and be a sweet smelling savour in the Nostrils of God. Now, get set and GO! GO! and SUPER GO! search the scriptures for every word that describes what we can do to well please God, then, after compliling a list go do them all with all your heart, mind, soul and strength.

It is not enough to know you are saved in Christ Jesus. You ought to proceed in personal efforts to confirm the reality of your salvation, thereby freeing yourself from satan 's snare to make you fall away. Thus personal diligence establishes the dividends of one 's deliverance

It means be fervent and brethren, so that your selection will not be in vain.
