And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. --2 Peter 2:5-8
We are grateful for apostles and prophets who share the Word of God with our weary world. As the Apostle Peter wrote, "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost" (2 Peter 1:21). Would He not call righteous, faithful men to lead us in the latter-days as He lead His Church in the past? What a blessing it is to KNOW that God loves us the same today as he loved others anciently.
