Remember the Basics

2 Peter 1:12 12 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have.  (NIV)

Peter was very familiar with human nature.  We all need to be reminded of things we already know.  We tend to become complacent.  Complacency leads to bad habits creeping into our life style.  This is one of the many reasons we need to be reading, studying and meditating on the written Word of God, the Holy Bible, daily.  It is the living word because the same verse can say different things to us depending on where we are in our walk.  It’s not that the same verse will say conflicting things.  It’s that there are various levels or depths of meaning.  This is part of the reminding.  We tend to want to skip the basics for the more complex and complicated meanings.  We must remember Jesus said we must come as a little child.  Let us never forget the basics.  Let us always go back to John 3:16 and remember it is Jesus Who is our Source of salvation, not our works.  Our works can only follow our love and devotion to our Savior.
