Grace and Peace in Abundance

Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours:

2 Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

2 Peter 1:1-2

In Peter’s second letter, he reminds his fellow believers that the faith we share in common is indeed precious and that it’s something we didn’t obtain on our own. That, of course, is an exhortation and a reminder of its costliness. We cannot soon forget such cost nor take it for granted.

He then blesses the people with a common prayer salutation: peace and grace.

Peace we understand more clearly than grace because we can “feel” peace. But grace is that blessing we receive just because. We didn’t merit, earn, or deserve it, but He gives freely anyhow.

Pray for people that they would experience that grace and peace in abundance. You won’t regret it and they will appreciate it.
