2 Peter 1:8-15 - Make Your Calling And Election Secure

8 For if you have these qualities in their fulness, they will make you neither idle nor unproductive when it comes to the understanding of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For whoever lacks these qualities is blind or near-sighted, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his former sins. 10 Therefore, brothers, make all the greater efforts to make God's call and choice of you certain. For if you have these qualities, you will never stumble, 11 for then you will be triumphantly admitted to the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

12 Therefore I will always remind you of this, although you know it and are firmly grounded in the truth that you have. 13 Yet I think it right, as long as I live in my present tent, to arouse you by a reminder, 14 for I know that I must soon put it away, as our Lord Jesus Christ has shown me. 15 I will also take care that after I am gone you will be able at any time to call these things to mind.
