10AM 2/9/20 – “Precious Promises” 2 Peter 1

Let me say boldly that it is not the difficulty of discovering truth, but the unwillingness to obey the truth, that makes it so rare among men. Jesus said, “I am… the Truth” (Jn 14:6). And again He said, “The Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost” (Lk 19:10). Truth, therefore, is not hard to find for this reason; He is seeking us(Jn.15:16)  So we learn that Truth is not a thing for which we must search, but a Person to whom we must listen! In the New Testament, multitudes came to Jesus for physical help, but only rarely did a person seek Him out to learn the Truth. The whole picture in the Gospels is one of a seeking Savior, not one of seeking men.  The Truth was hunting for those who would receive it, and relatively few did, for “many are called, but few are chosen” (Matt 22:14). And His precious promises are to those who are chosen of God and obey.  A. W. Tozer 1897 – 1963
