2 Pet 3:8–13

Now, dear friends, do not let this one thing escape your notice, that a
single day is like a thousand years with the Lord and a thousand years are
like a single day.
The Lord is not slow concerning his promise, as some regard slowness, but
is being patient toward you because he does not wish for any to perish but
for all to come to repentance.
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief; when it comes, the heavens
will disappear with a horrific noise, and the celestial bodies will melt
away in a blaze, and the earth and every deed done on it will be laid bare.
Since all these things are to melt away in this manner, what sort of
people must you be, conducting your lives in holiness and godliness,
while waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God? Because of
this day, the heavens will be burned up and dissolve, and the celestial
bodies will melt away in a blaze!
But, according to his promise, we are waiting for new heavens and a new
earth, in which righteousness truly resides.

One thought:

The end of the world isn’t coming with a whimper, but a bang

Three questions:

What issue or question is Peter addressing do you think?

How do you feel about Jesus’ return?

If Jesus comes back in 2021 – what’s one thing you should change now?



Praise God for His patience toward humanity. Give thanks that we can look forward to a new heavens and a new earth because of the work of Christ. Ask God to help you + someone else conduct yourselves in godliness and holiness – even more as the day approaches.
