Many of us think it is highly unlikely that genuine Christians will deny God except under extremely trying circumstances—like when a gun barrel is pointed at one’s head.
if we deny him, he also will deny us;
if we are faithless, he remains faithful—for he cannot deny himself”
and the coming one will come and will not delay;
but my righteous one shall live by faith,
and if he shrinks back,
my soul has no pleasure in him.’
- Build ourselves up in our most holy faith (Jude 1:20).
- Be all the more diligent to confirm our calling and election (2 Peter 1:10).
- Bear fruits that befit repentance (Luke 3:8).
- Make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him (2 Peter 3:14).
