"But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities." 2 Peter 2:10

I memorized this verse after memorizing 2 Peter 2:9 last week. My verse this week has really challenged me. According to 2 Peter 2:9, the people described in this verse will be reserved "unto the day of judgment to be punished." Sadly, this list is seen in many of those who claim to be God's own. Many Christians despise government and speak evil of the dignities. They are presumptuous (daring, audacious) and self-willed (self-pleasing, arrogant). Are we among this list?

"The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:" (2 Peter 2:9)

What a comforting verse this is for those of us who are covered by Jesus Christ's blood!!!!

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Matthew 23:23

This verse has come often to my mind. I might be wearing dresses, talking "right," and tithing, but I might be neglecting to show Christ's love, to care for those who are not "just like me" and to pray for others' salvation. In my Christian walk, what am I doing and what am I leaving undone?

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

A pastor friend of ours challenged the Bible study group to memorize this verse, so I did. :) This is indeed a beautiful promise that we can hold close to our hearts and share with others!
