Dawn's Early Light

2 Peter 1:4 (NLT)
... to share his divine nature...

- That the divine nature forms within human beings is mind-boggling.

2 Peter 1:16,18 (NLT)
...We saw his majestic splendor with our own eyes [18] We ourselves heard that voice from heaven when we were with him on the holy mountain.

- Peter is referring to the event where he and two others winessed Jesus' transfiguration, and heard the voice of God testify, "this is my son." That's gotta leave an impression.

2 Peter 1:19 (NLT)
...and Christ the Morning Star shines in your hearts.

- the morning star refers to the planet Venus. For much of the year it appears as the brightest star in the dark morning sky as it rises just before the sun. So this is a beautiful metaphor describing Christ's shining in our hearts as a prelude to a much larger light illuminating the whole world.

- I wonder -
