I will keep on reminding you (2 Pet 1:12)

“Therefore,

I intend

To keep on reminding you

Of these things,

Though you know them already

And are established

In the truth

That has come

To you.”

Διὸ μελλήσω ἀεὶ ὑμᾶς ὑπομιμνῄσκειν περὶ τούτων, καίπερ εἰδότας καὶ ἐστηριγμένους ἐν τῇ παρούσῃ ἀληθείᾳ.

This author said “Therefore (Διὸ), I intend to keep on (μελλήσω ἀεὶ) reminding (ὑπομιμνῄσκειν) you (ὑμᾶς) of these things (περὶ τούτων), though you know (εἰδότας) them already (καίπερ) and are established (καὶ ἐστηριγμένους) in the truth that has come to you (ἐν τῇ παρούσῃ ἀληθείᾳ).”  This author reminded his readers that that he was going to keep on reminding them about the importance of faith, knowledge, and love.  He realized that they knew about these things, since they were living a life full of faith, knowledge, and love.  The truth had come to them, but he was still going to continue to remind them to live up to their own expectations.  Do you live up to your own Christian expectations?
