Rock of Ages
The Perpetual Reminder
2 Peter 1:12-21
2 Timothy 3:16-17
2 Peter 3:2, 15-16
John 5:39-40, 45-47
Luke 24:25-27, 44
- How can we trust the Bible? How can we be confident it’s the Word of God? Do you struggle with this?
- Try this exercise. Look through Jesus’ words in the gospels and find where he affirms the Scriptures, showing his trust in the Word of God. (Here’s an example…Matthew 4:1-11)
- Examine the media (news, TV, music, social media) you are consuming. Is it building your confidence in the Bible…or reducing it?
- What teachers has God provided to help in your spiritual growth and knowledge of the Bible? Where do you want a deeper understanding?
In light of the shifting shadows of thought within our culture, it is the longing of many to find something to cling to that does not move. Jesus is that steadfast rock that we can stand on historically, now, and for the ages to come. These two epistles are Peter’s final charge to the church to give strength and confidence that is rooted in the life changing work of Jesus Christ.
