“The Day of the Lord!” … Just read about it in my Bible this morning! My personal priorities in light of it…

The Day of the Lord

“The Day of the Lord” … Just read about it in my Bible this morning!
“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!” (2 Peter 3:10)
The question that comes to mind, in light of that, is what should be the response of God’s people? Well, Apostle Peter was pretty clear about that…
Evangelism! “The Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise as some count slowness, but is patient… not wishing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance… Count the patience of our Lord as salvation!” (vss. 9 and 15)
Holy living! “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 of the day of God.” (vss. 11-12)
Hopefulness! “But according to His promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells!” (vs. 13)
Diligent discipleship! “Therefore, beloved, since you are waiting for these things, be diligent to be found by Him without spot or blemish, and at peace.”
Care not to be deceived! “Take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability.” (vs. 17)
Grow in God’s grace and your knowledge of Him! “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!”
Just a few personal priorities in light of the end of all things and the coming of the Lord to establish His eternal kingdom! “To Him be the lorry both now and to the day of eternity! Amen!!” (From 2 Peter 3:8-18 ESV)
