Peter desired to encourage the scattered, first-century believers to live authentic, Christian lives to counteract the counterfeits and phonies who were creeping into the church. Authentic Christians eagerly anticipate the Lord’s soon return by growing in grace, increasing in the knowledge of Jesus Christ, and adding Christlike characteristics to their lives. Counterfeits can fool most people, and even themselves, but they can never fool God. God sees the heart and will someday separate the counterfeit from the authentic with those dreadful words, “Depart from me, I never knew you.” This study of 2 Peter will help us to take an honest look at a genuine life in Christ.
