Eyewitnesses of His majesty

Peter was more than ready and willing to remind his brothers and sisters about the need to confirm their calling and election…that is to live continuously in a state of: knowledge of God and Jesus, the Lord; participation in the divine nature, by “escaping” the worldly corruption “caused by evil desires”; making an effort to…grow (adding Christians “qualities”)…growing in godliness;

Knowing God often comes/starts with:

-hearing the silence; When all those around don’t hear a thing, but you do. When God spoke to Abraham, it was only him that heard the “voice”. “The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you” (Genesis 12:1).

-reading the “letter” hearing “the story”; “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.” So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent that day with him. It was about the tenth hour” (John 1:39).

What did they see? What did they eat? Nothing extraordinary.

What did they hear? Now, that is a million dollar question.

-seeing the invisible.

“By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible” (Hebrews 11:27).

How can you see the invisible?

Seeing the invisible God is actually God’s gift. When He graciously acts to reveal Himself (or one of His eternal attributes) we “see” the invisible. Seeing beyond seeing. Moses saw “a burning bush” (Exodus 3:1ff).

Peter takes a stand against the falsehood as an eyewitness of Jesus’ majesty. “We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty” (2Peter 1:16).

All those who come to know God, become witnesses/eyewitnesses to His presence and grace. Are you one of those?
