The Same Precious Faith

September 9th, 2017 · No Comments

2 Peter 1:1b (New Living Translation)

I am writing to you who share the same precious faith we have. This faith was given to you because of the justice and fairness of Jesus Christ, our God and Savior.

This is a letter to those who share the same precious faith that the writer has. What is that same precious faith mentioned here? (We can have faith in a lot of things.)

It is the belief that, even though we didn’t see it with our own eyes, Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God and came here to take our sins away so that we can be blameless in the sight of God.

That faith in the unseen is a precious one. It has been the basis of life for countless persons for 20-some centuries and continues today. It is a precious faith.
