2 Peter, Jude Quotes by Douglas J. Moo
2 Peter 3:18 (Glory, Glory, Glory)
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Psalm The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Hosea I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon. Malachi But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
To him be glory both now and forever! To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. To him be glory both now and for ever. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. All glory to him, both now and forever! What does 2 Peter mean?
But grow in grace - Increase in the image and favor of God; every grace and Divine influence which ye have received is a seed, a heavenly seed, which, if it be watered with the dew of heaven from above, will endlessly increase and multiply itself. He who continues to believe, love, and obey, will grow in grace, and continually increase in the knowledge of Jesus Christ, as his sacrifice, sanctifier, counsellor, preserver, and final Savior. The life of a Christian is a growth; he is at first born of God, and is a little child; becomes a young man, and a father in Christ. Every father was once an infant; and had he not grown, he would have never been a man. Those who content themselves with the grace they received when converted to God, are, at best, in a continual state of infancy: but we find, in the order of nature, that the infant that does not grow, and grow daily, too, is sickly and soon dies; so, in the order of grace, those who do not grow up into Jesus Christ are sickly, and will soon die, die to all sense and influence of heavenly things. There are many who boast of the grace of their conversion; persons who were never more than babes, and have long since lost even that grace, because they did not grow in it.
Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
