“So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have.”
~2 Peter 1:12
Do you think you know it well?
Do you think you’re firmly established in it?
And you don’t think you need anyone telling you what you already know?
Do you make statements like:
Hey, I already know it. I’m already established in it; so can we please talk about something else?
Why should I read it again?
I already know the story; so why should I listen to it again?
I’ve seen this thing before; why should I look at it again?
Apostle Peter in writing to the church essentially said, “I know you already know these things. I know you are firmly established in it; but, I will still tell you about it again, and again, and again.” He understood the power of repetition.
Are you tired of hearing the same things?
Have you become so knowledgeable that you don’t listen again?
Do you teach people the same things repeatedly?
Do you harness the power of repetition when teaching people?
Or do you assume that they already know it, and there is no point in telling them what they already know again and again, and again?
Is it your pattern to listen to the same thing again and again?
Is it your style to read the same book again and again?
Is it in your manner to listen to the same story again, and again, and again?
Is it your habit to tell the same people the same thing again, and again, and again?
Or are you bored with repetition?
2 Peter 1:12
So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have.
O Lord, please help me to effectively harness the power of repetition where it is necessary in all my dealings, in Jesus’ name.
