“Grow, dear friends, but grow, I beseech you, in God’s way, which is the only true way.”
In Peter’s first epistle, he opens his letter by encouraging us in the living hope that we have in Jesus Christ and the incorruptible inheritance that is reserved in heaven for us.
He reminds us that we are called to live holy lives as a result of the redemption that was purchased for us by the precious blood of Jesus Christ on the cross.
He reminds us that we have been born again of incorruptible seed through the word of God which lives and abides forever.
Because of these things, Peter beseeches us in Chapter 2 that we need to lay aside our former behaviors so that we might grow in the faith.
