This weekend we begin our final section of 2 Peter entitled Be Gone. As the titles suggests, we will encounter Peter’s teaching about the Second Coming. Before Peter gets into those important matters, he gives us the reason for writing this letter. He felt urgency to remind his readers of what they knew so that they could keep their heads on straight when so many others were losing theirs. Just like Peter’s readers, we occasionally need people who will remind us of the truth and help us keep perspective in confusing times. Just like Peter, we can do the same for others.
