a thought, a word, from Peter

8 Jul

a pause to briefly consider 2nd Peter 3

Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking. 2 I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles.’

an essential pause, what is ‘wholesome’ thinking?

For Peter and the young suffering Christian Church it has to be NOT living in present despairs, but ‘whole’ transformative thoughts/ long term meditations & reflections

and this type of thinking must involve an essential ‘command’ from the Word…

1 Peter 1 defines – I believe- this command,

22 ‘Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.’

the word, the truth, cleanses; deep, sincere struggling love heals

We are to love, from our hearts

love
