Minister’s Moment: There will be no poor among you
There Will Be No Poor Among You
A Precious Faith
2 Peter 1:1-2
Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have received a faith as precious as ours through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: may grace and peace be yours in abundance in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
So begins Peter’s second epistle. This sounds like the greetings Paul sent to the churches with which he corresponded. And yet, there is something different about Peter’s greeting—not too much: just a few words set it apart. Peter says, “To those who have received a faith as precious as ours.” It sounds innocuous until we examine it closely.
