“So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have. I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body. And I will make every effort to see that after [I stop blogging] you will always be able to remember these things.” (2 Peter 1:12–15, NIV 1984).
My Musings – I have been posting blogs almost daily since late summer of 2017. As my “following” has grown (still relatively modest by comparison to others), I have also been re-blogging some of my early musings when I had much fewer readers. As I have done so, I realize that I have a tendency to repeat certain themes.
Now most of my readers are, I believe, followers of Christ (and hopefully some seekers). So I think you will cut me a little grace on that. But like Peter, repeating myself is not entirely a matter of advancing age, although I am sure there is some of that too. We always need to be reminded of “these things, even though [we] know them and are firmly established in the truth.” I cannot promise that I will continue to blog for as long “as I live in the tent of this body.” I will, however, continue as long I feel called to do so.
My Advice – The astute reader will note that I omitted a portion of the above Scripture. “I know that I will soon put it [the tent of this body] aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me.” (2 Peter 1:14, NIV 1984). While more of my life is behind than ahead, I do not know if the “time of my departure is near” or not. But after I am gone or stop blogging (whichever comes first) I pray that “you will always be able to remember these things.” But more than that, that you will pass them along. “And the things you have [read in my musings] in the presence of [a few readers] entrust to reliable men [and women] who will also be qualified to teach others.” (2 Timothy 2:2, NIV 1984).
