12 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have. 13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body, 14 because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. 15 And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.
2 Peter 1:12-15
In his own words, Peter is making a plea for his followers to remember what he has been teaching them. That would mean they would have to read his letters over and over again.
We, of course, can do this as well to the point that we memorize the words. After they are memorized, then we just go over and over these words in our head until they are deeply implanted within our beings.
It’s an interesting point we all should consider. How has the Word of God changed our lives lately? Or has it done so? Obviously, the more we commit to memory, the more He can use in our lives.
We truly underestimate the power of the Word of God. It has the power to change, rebuke, admonish, and correct our thinking. Now, we know this in theory because we believe the Bible to be powerful, but do we believe it practically?
Just a few thoughts as you read the Word of God today.
