Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. 2 Peter 1:2

Recently, I was watching a show on Animal Planet. I learned an easy way to find scorpions at night. If you shine a black light on a scorpion in the dark, it glows an iridescent green and it can't hide!

As our reading today illustrates, the knowledge of God alone does not bring grace or peace. In fact, it brings the exact opposite: guilt and dread. If you've ever taken the time to read the book of Job in the Bible, you'll quickly learn that Job's encounter with God left him speechless and painfully aware of his inherent unworthiness. Like a scorpion under a black light in the presence of an all-powerful, all-knowing God, his lack of holiness could not be hidden. As unredeemed sinners, we cannot hide our lack of holiness either.

But when we come to know Jesus as both our Savior (which is what "Jesus" means) and Lord, grace and peace are poured out on us in abundance. The verb here is passive, indicating that grace and peace are given to us. We know grace: Jesus took God's wrath for our sin on the cross. We also know righteousness: His perfect record of obedience to the Father is given to us. That gives us a peace that surpasses all which we can safely hide.

The apostle Paul explains what happens when a sinner is saved...through the knowledge and saving grace of Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. Colossians 3:3  

INSIGHT: Knowing You Jesus...There is no greater thing! You're the best thing that's ever happened to me. You're my righteousness and my all in all. I love you Lord Jesus!

Prayer: Draw me close to you and never let me go Lord God...Give me the sense that I am a mortal human being and that my days are numbered. I want to be ready when I meet you...covered by the precious blood of Your Son, Jesus Christ...forgiven and destined for an eternity with You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
