2 Peter 3:10-11


“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives.”

Read all of 2 Peter 3

The earlier Verse for Today was really the Verse from Yesterday.  I thought I had sent it… but there it was still waiting to be sent.  🙂 

At any rate, today’s verse is pretty important.    Highlights:

1. Lord will return one day when we don’t expect Him.
2. It will be pretty clear.  Unmistakable.  The world as we know/see it will end.
3. In the mean time (until the End), we’d better take living for God seriously.  It’s not really a question.

This final chapter of from Peter conclude with two exhortations:

14 “Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; 15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation.”
and
17 “You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.”
Read’em and weep?  NO!  Rejoice and Remember his words!
