So here’s the sequel to yesterday’s post in “coffee with the Lord”… Doesn’t need much comment…
“And so, dear friends, while you are waiting for these things to happen, make every effort to be found living peaceful lives that are pure and blameless in his sight. And remember, our Lord’s patience gives people time to be saved… I am warning you ahead of time, dear friends. Be on guard so that you will not be carried away by the errors of these wicked people and lose your own secure footing. Rather, you must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All glory to him, both now and forever! Amen.” (2 Peter 3:14–18 NLT)
According to these passages we face two things… The frightening prospect of “the Day of the Lord” and the wonderful prospect of “the day of God” with the confident hope of “a new heaven and earth where righteousness dwells”!
I intend to live ready for what the future brings… trying to reach others with the gospel… staying alert and on guard for my own spiritual welfare… and keep on growing in the wonderful grace He provides… all the while getting to know Him better and better!!
How about you?
