How can we be assured that the faith we pursue is not in vain? Christians are not living their lives on unfounded claims. In fact, we have credible witnesses whose claims about the promises of God are trustworthy. In this passage, we are shown three witnesses that give us assurance of our faith: the Apostles who lived with Jesus, God the Father who spoke at Jesus’ transfiguration, and the prophets who’s words were confirmed throughout history. The result is confidence of our faith in Jesus and His coming kingdom.
2 Peter 1:16-21
