The author hopes these twelve thoughts will, like the twelve apostles:

Strengthen your faith in our Lord

Provide you with the reassurances of Jesus

Make you aware that God knows all you think, say, or do

Remind you that God forgives the sins of those who repent

Supply reminders that Satan and sin affect us all

Sustain your faith when troubles torment

Convince you that salvation comes by grace alone

Prompt your awareness of the Holy Spiritís presence

Encourage giving of your worldly goods to God and the needy

Understand better your Christian responsibilities

Help you to follow in Christís footsteps

Present Christís message to the unsaved that you meet
