We see that Peter’s exhortation means we must go beyond knowing about Christ to actually experiencing Him. As this happens more in our lives, we will become more and more like Him. We study aspects of Christ’s character in which we should increasingly resemble Him, beginning with His love. We must love God the way that Jesus does, and love both our brothers and our enemies as well. We look also at the rewards for the obedience of love that are offered to us in the Bible, and see that the fear of God should motivate us also.
