Grow in grace, and give the glory to Jesus.

“Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen” (2 Peter 3:18).

This is the final thought Peter leaves us with, at the end of the second of his two letters. It’s like he’s saying to us, “This what I, really, want you to remember. This is the most important thing. This the thing you must never forget.”

As I was reading this verse, three words grabbed my attention: grow, grace and glory.

We are to grow. How are we to grow? What kind of growth is there to be in our hearts and lives?

We are to grow in grace. It’s grace that makes growing in knowledge more than head-knowledge.

We are to give glory to “our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” We give glory to the Lord when we grow in his grace.
