Righteousness delivereth from death

2 Peter 2

Holy men of old spake as they were moved by the Spirit.

2 Peter 2:1-9

Former judgments are the sure proofs that present sin will also meet with punishment.

2 Peter 2:22

The apostles were most anxious that believers should persevere, and therefore they cautioned them as to the dire results of apostasy. These frequent warnings should make us watchful, and lead us to cry mightily to him who alone is able to keep us from falling. Only divine grace can preserve us from the seducing spirits which abound on all sides.

 

Jesus, the Lord, shall guard me safe

From every ill design;

And to his heavenly kingdom keep

This feeble soul of mine.

 

God is my everlasting aid,

And hell shall rage in vain:

To him be highest glory paid,

And endless praise—Amen.
