wait for Him… 2 Peter 3:10-12…

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief,
and then the heavens will pass away with a roar,
and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved,
and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.
Since all these things are thus to be dissolved,
what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness
and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming
day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire
and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn!
2 Peter 3:11-12 ESV
The day of the Lord is coming…
like a thief…
unannounced…
uninvited…
in some cases… unwanted…
On this day… every created thing…
corrupted by the rebellion… sin… of man…
everything tainted…
will be destroyed…
burned up…
A heat so hot…
the already flaming stars…
will melt…
All will be exposed…
every deed…
and its hidden motive…
revealed… by the holy fire… of God’s judgment…
If all that’s corrupt…
is to be destroyed…
how ought we live…?
If all that is done…
is to be exposed for what it really is…
how ought we live…?
Peter tells us…
in lives of holiness… godliness…
waiting for…
even hurrying up…
the coming day of God…
Live a life which won’t dissolve…
under the holy fire of Him…
invite Him…
hurry Him…
work to bring others to Him…
those He’s waiting for…
those He knows are coming…
Look forward to…
work toward…
His breaking in…
and breaking out…
the world from its sin… and corruption…
Are you looking forward to His Day…?
or dreading it…? like a thief in the night…?
