Are you relying upon your own works or upon the supernatural power, strength, and mercy of God?

And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? (1 Peter 4:18 KJV)

Have you tasted of God’s righteousness finding it spiritually delicious?

For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. (2 Peter 2:21-22 KJV)

Peter is speaking in ...
