THE LIST. Peter’s list of virtues, 2Pet 1.5-7:

  • They are the virtues of Christ, v. 3.
  • An incomplete list, but representative (7 of them).
  • Last is love, to bind them all together.

These my points tonight in the series, “The Good Addition.”

The wife speaks at a ladies event tomorrow, and I thought I was just the driver. Looks like I’ll wind up doing a class for some men. Thought I was going to get off this weekend. We’ll enjoy it, however.

Men’s training this afternoon focused on Genesis, God’s eternal plan, the power of his word, man going from bad to worse, necessity of obedience, the book as the basis and beginning of everything. Lots covered!

Good study tonight at Pedro and Karol’s as we started new-convert studies with them, reviewing what they just did in obedience to the Lord. They live in the northern zone of the city, the firstfruits of that region.

Left at 7.30 am to preach and teach in Pimentas this morning, an hour away from here, on authority and worship. Always good to be with those faithful people. Lunch with Valdir, then back to building to meet with some men from the Vila Maria congregation about ministry. Got home after 5 pm. Ready for our meeting at 7.30 pm.
