This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2 Peter 3:1
Complacency has set into the average church in America. It’s not the liberal church’s fault. It’s not the atheist fault. It’s not the sinners fault. It’s my fault and it’s your fault if you are a Christian and we are not following the Word of God.
Peter said in order the get people out of their complacency (stir up your pure minds) he was going to stir them up. He did this by His Word and His Preachers! Be thankful for the preacher God has put in your life! It may be your Mom or Dad, your Sunday School teacher, a friend at School, a co-worker, a grandma or grandpa, or your pastor or youth pastor! God has placed people in your life to show you the way through the wilderness! Will you remain in your self-centered way or will you be stirred up?
