Know How to Die
The letters were written by Peter while he was in Rome, toward the end of his own life, just a year or less before he was executed by the Roman government. Peter writes to give last guidance to those who would follow. And he writes especially to leaders.
2 Peter 1-12
Peter looks at his own experience and tells us that when we have truly experienced and dwelt in the love of Jesus, the forgiveness of Jesus and the sacrificial servanthood of Jesus, we will lead our people willingly, eagerly, by proving to be examples to the flock.
