Keeping your faith and knowledge in the Lord is very important especially in these last days, we are always in danger to stray away and wander from the truth, even some of Jesus’ disciples while walking with Him physically wandered away, because of distractions around them, in this day we have a lot more distracting us all the day long. BEWARE!
John 6:66-67 From that time many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
The unlearned and unstable in Christ are tossed to and fro from the scriptures. Many read the scriptures, but do not understand what they read. Many who have an understanding of the “Word”; are not established in the faith, and apt to fall from the truth.
Only a few achieve the knowledge and recognize the way the first century Christians grew in their godliness, the narrow way, which leads to life.
There must be self-denial of ourselves and submit to the authority of Christ, before we can receive all the truths of the gospel, to keep us from the great danger of rejecting the truth and going astray.
Grow in Grace, faith, virtue, and Knowledge in the Lord Jesus Christ and in these; we become stronger and steadfast in the truth.
2 Peter 3:18 Grow in Grace!
