TOPIC:
BEWARE, LEST YOU FALL

Read 2 Peter. 3:14-18
14. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
15. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
16. As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
17. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.
18. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

MEMORISE: Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked (2 Peter. 3:17)

EXPOSITION
Paul warned believers in 1 Timothy. 4:1ff. that in the last days, some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrine of demons. Throughout the history of the Church, some have always refused to love sound doctrine; and as the end draws near, the situation will be growing worst. They will not endure sound doctrines. Many will profess to be Christians, gather at Churches, appear to reference God, but will not tolerate Biblical demand to separate from unrighteousness.
We are therefore admonished to beware lest we fall from our own steadfastness, but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (2 Pet. 3:17-18). The only way to build our house so that it is not overtaken by anything that may come against it, is to build it on the rock, which Jesus Christ explained is to hear and abide by God's Word (Matt. 7:24-25).
We should not become lazy and complacent because Christ has not yet returned. Instead, we should live in eager expectation of His coming. *Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus , the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endure the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God (Heb. 12:1b, 2).

PRAYER POINT:
1. Lord Jesus, please uphold me with Your right hand of righteousness, so that I will not fall from steadfastness.
2. Father, help me in Your mercy to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
3. Pray for children from Christian homes who have been caught in the web of cultism for any reasons, that God should restore them to Himself.
