CHAPTER READ: 2 Peter 3
SCRIPTURE SELECTED: 2 Peter 3:13-14
13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells. 14 So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace w!ith him.
OBSERVATION: We are waiting for a time when righteousness dwells and we are at peace! First, the heavens and stars will dissolve (not a picture we want to look at). But then a new heaven and a new earth! Before this happens Peter stresses that we be diligent (working in God’s strength) to be found without spot or blemish. We know we can’t do this on our own. Our only Hope is God the Father, Jesus, His Son, and the Holy Spirit.
APPLICATION & PRAYER: “Dear Father God help us to totally trust you! Bring us to a state of peace with You and Your Son and Your Spirit. Thank You, Thank you. Thank You!”
