The Need To Be Reminded

Our Wednesday night the adult class where I preach at West Main is studying Peter’s epistles and is being taught very ably by one of our young men, Zach Kelsey.

Last night we were covering the text in 2 Peter 1:12-15 where Peter said that it was important to remind his readers of the Truth, although they knew it and were established in it.
