The Conclusion of the Matter

December 15, 2019 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: 2 Peter

Scripture: 2 Peter 3:15–3:18

The Conclusion of the Matter
2 Peter 3:15-19
December 15, 2019



I.    Count God's patience as salvation. 2 Peter 3:15a.


II.   The promised return of Christ is also a theme in Paul's writings. 2 Peter 3:15b-16.


III.  To summarize in conclusion:

       A.  Be on your guard. 2 Peter 3:17.


       B.  Grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 3:18.


Questions for reflection:

  • Peter tells us that God's main reason for the delay of Christ's return is so that there is time fo more peple to be saved. What does this tell us about the heart of God? How should God's concern for the salvation of the lost inform our own lives?
  • Christians do not stand spiritually still for very long. Would you say you are spiritually growing? In what ways?

  • Where might you need to make changes to help you grow in your knowledge of God and truth? What practical steps can you take to aid your growth in godly character and obedience?
