The Stakes Are High So Carry On

In our Epistle for this week, Peter calls us to pay attention to the truth of the Gospel. He reminds us that He was an eyewitness to God’s approval of His Son on the mountain. He reminds us that prior to this, God was at work through the writings of the prophets. In, with and under these words of truth from Peter are “high stakes” questions for us to ponder: Will we listen and permit ourselves to be carried along by God’s truth? Will we let the Holy Spirit guide us in God’s will and grace? And, if not, have we honestly considered what is at stake?
