Peter encourages his readers to grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is so they will have a defense against scoffers who had arisen among them and who were threatening to derail them from pursuing a path of sanctification, by questioning the truthfulness of Christ’s teaching on the second coming. We are exhorted as the New Year begins to be similarly growing in grace and knowledge as a safeguard for our souls in days when many question the truth of God’s word.
