Scriptures: 2 Peter 2:4-11
Peter was in the fishing business and Jesus asked to preach from his boat to the crowds. Then followed it with a fishing miracle.
Peter's reaction was "Away from me for I am a sinful man." The opposite of Jesus' "Come with me!"
From then on Peter oscillated from fear to faith, exampled by his 3x denial of Christ and then Jesus' opposite 3x reaffirmation of Peter's role as a shepherd in the church.
Peter an unfiltered guy - exposes his heart often. Jesus loves that.
2 Peter 2:4-11
We have everything we need from God already given to us 1:3-4
Chapter 2 string words to warn against false prophets and teachers
Need to read them through the lens of faith.
Eternal consequences for false teachers who are denying the Master v11
Gospel is about eternal destiny? Where will you spend it. The Gospel is a great exchange - our mess for God's reighteousness, eternal pleasure and God's glory.
When a teacher denies the gospel and makes little of the blood of Jesus he is leading people to a lost eternity and deserves eternal punishment.
Two examples in the passage
1) Noah - a herald of righteousness in a world of mess.
The destiny of Noah is preservation, the destiny of the ungodly destruction
Noah saved because of righteousness - gifted to him, not by what he was doing or what he earned, but a gift.
Ararat where the ark landed, means "the curse is reversed". The ark is a type of the cross. We take refuge at the cross, where we are safe and the curse is reversed
2) Lot - nephew of Abraham who believed nd was credited with righteousness. Nephew Lot part of that.
Takeaways
1) Lot judged with his eyes what was good - made some mistakes, although saved.
"You can't polish a turd, but you can cover it with glitter" - what the world does, but it doesn't save us.
By his choices he ended up living in a town whose name means insignificance
2) God not on a sin hunt, but looking to give righteousness because of faith in Jesus.
Application Questions
1) How does Peter's life story encourage us?
2) What does it mean for a false teacher to make little of the blood of Jesus?
3) What in Noah's life helps us see our destiny?
4 What can we learn from Lot's mistakes to help us?
