Beyond the Gospels: Peter

Today’s passage: 2 Peter 3:1-13
[If possible, open your Bible today. You might want to make note of something. Otherwise, click the reference above to read online.]

What will the future hold for those who find this world so attractive? God has called Believers to live holy lives. It is God’s desire to see that all have an opportunity for repentance, not wanting anyone to perish. God’s timing is His alone in view of the coming destruction of the world. Nothing of this universe will remain when God judges.

The Christian can look forward to a new heaven and a new earth. But unbelievers will scoff and forget that there was a Genesis flood as an act of divine judgment. When the day of judgment comes the world will be destroyed by fire.

Peter speaks of a roaring crackling sound as the physical elements that compose the universe melt in disintegrating volcanic heat. Nothing of the universe will remain when God judges. Only righteousness will carry over into the new heaven and earth He will create.

Thought for today: Remember who you are and Whose you are. Through the word spoken by the Prophets and Apostles, and the commandments we have been given knowledge of the godly way.

Lord, may the guidance of Your Holy Spirit make that which is true
and that which is false clear to us.
