2 Peter 1:12-15
Why I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though you know them…
I. A SATISFACTORY POSITION. They are commended —
1. For proper knowledge. "Ye know them," i.e., the practical bearings of the Christian religion.

II. A HAZARDOUS CONDITION. The higher a man rises, the more Satan desires to sift him.
1. The natural tendency of fallen nature.

III. A JUDICIOUS PRECAUTION. "I will... put you always in remembrance."

2. Christianity consists of two parts — faith and practice. Both are easily forgotten or neglected. Other things absorb the mind.
