THAT YOU WON'T FALL AWAY

 
2 Peter 3:17


"Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position." NIV



"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." KJV


Why would the Apostle Paul warn committed Christians to be on guard against being deceived by the world and its' ways? He knew how subtle the enemy is, and how the truth is easily twisted into a believable idea. If we stay on guard, stay in the Word of God, and stay in prayer, we will be able to discern the truth and any falsehood that tries to creep in unnoticed. In these last days, that will be more difficult than ever before.


Heavenly Father, help us to stay on guard and give us discernment so that we don't get snared by the lies that sound good but will lead us away from the truth. Increase our hunger for the Word and prayer so that we stay close to You and the truth. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
