Living in the light
2 Peter 3 verse 17 - 18
I am warning you ahead of time, dear friends, so that you can watch out and not be carried away by the errors of these wicked people. I don't want you to lose your secure footing. But grow in the special favor and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Peter warns us not lose our secure footing, our stability and our focus. Jesus is our secure footing and in Him we will be stable. I see a mountain climber, after climbing a difficult section, he finally finds a place with secure footing. This will give him stability to move higher, but if he so decides to keep moving side ways and look for another secure place he could lose his footing and stumbles. He could even fall. This is Jesus, let us keep our secure footing and not look around to find another, but instead, place our trust in Him and grow in our knowledge of Him.

1 John 1 verse 1
The one who existed from the beginning is the one we have heard and seen. We saw Him with our own eyes and touched Him with our own hands. He is Jesus Christ, the Word of life. 
1 John 2 verse 1-2
My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if you do sin, there is someone to plead for you before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who pleases God completely. He is the sacrifice for our sins, He takes away not only our sins, but the sins of all the world.
1 John 2 verse 6
Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Christ did.

He is our sacrifice. Jesus came to take away all our sins, and still pleads for us every day. He is our Word of life and we should strive to live our lives as He did.
