“Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,12looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat!” 2 Peter 3:11-12
[I am back. Sorry for the hiatus. It's been quite busy with ministry. I will try to be disciplined to post couple times a week.]
This morning’s Life Journal reading was in 2 Peter. To be honest, when I think about the fact that everything will just burn up with intense heat, it’s bit depressing. But the truth of the matter is that everything is temporal. Given this eternal perspective, Peter allows me to think about the things that will not burn up. That is my salvation in Christ. But more than anything, the life of “holy conduct and godliness” should characterized the people of God who understand the outcome of this world.
