Rock Bottom

In 2 Peter 1:5-7 Peter put faith first and then listed the other qualities. Every writer thinks strategically about word placement. There’s a reason Peter started with faith.

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.

Are all of my behaviors today on rock solid ground? Of course not. But now I know how to get re-grounded: Read the WORD, pray, be among discerning Christians…
