  2. Every day we each make a big choice. Each day we choose which master we will follow. This is not about what we say, because with our mouth, most believers would readily say that Christ is our Master.

    Each day we point to our Master by our choices, with our time investments, and with our motivations that drive our handling of money: those are the actions that speak louder than our words. Those are the choices that clearly frame who really is the master of our lives.

    As we turn again to 2 Peter 3 we see what Peter had heard way back there in the Sermon on the Mount, with the disciples: that we can only serve one master at a time. Right there, at the start of His ministry, Jesus comes right to the point.

    Choosing Which Master We’ll Follow

    We have a choice of Masters, and only one can be served. Peter held onto that truth all his days.

    As we look at 2 Peter 3, note the repeated tone of Peter’s challenge. It is gentle, loving, and urgent. Peter repeats the word “beloved” five times. That should jump off the page for us, setting in our hearts the tone Peter has in this exhortation

  3. We were saved to serve God; but Satan wants to distract us from God using the world’s allurements. One of the greatest needs in life is contentment. Contentment comes only by the application of the doctrines of God to my life.

    Any lack of contentment signals a deficiency in experiencing God’s truth in my life. Just as prayerfulness reflects how much we need God, so our:

    Contentment Reflects How Well We Know God

    There are three key truths about God that when embraced by choice in our lives, releases contentment into our lives. Those truths are: the goodness of God, the omniscience of God, and the omnipotence of God.

    When those truths are held to, then we accept our personal unworthiness, we mortify our personal worldliness, we pursue our friendship with God, and then we enjoy more and more satisfaction in God.

    Contentment is satisfaction with God’s goodness, omniscience, and omnipotence.

    Contentment produces a peaceful, thankful, and happy-with-what-you-have: type of life. Contentment unleashes God’s power into my life and ministry: no matter how bad or good it is.

    Among all the saints of the Bible, Paul was probably one of the greatest of God’s servants. The vast majority of all believers down through the past two thousand years have been taught by Paul’s Epistles, or came to Christ through one of Paul’s spiritual children. He started more churches in the early days, traveled more miles, and did more for the spread of Christ's church, than any other. How was Paul so effective? Maybe it was because of:

    Paul’s Testimony on Contentment

    How did Paul resist the materialism of the Roman Empire, and not get infected with the greed for things and the lust for comforts? He gives his testimony in Philippians 4. The lessons are very powerful.
