2PE 1:9
He that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
2 Peter 1:9
A blind Christian is one who does not show the characteristics of the divine nature in his life. Such a one shows in his manner of life that he has no appreciation of the forgiveness of his old sins. Because we need to be continually in the appreciation of our salvation, the Apostle Peter writes later in the chapter that as long as he was alive he would stir them up and put them in remembrance of these things. Even after his death he wanted them to be reminded and stirred up. So we have his letters to read today. Meditate upon those letters and be stirred up!
