The Day of the Lord

Reading in 2 Peter 3:10-18, the consummation of heaven and earth will come unexpectedly with a roar and everything will be destroyed by fire. Our response should be to live holy and godly lives (v. 12). We do not know the day of the Lord but it is something to look forward to because of a new heaven and earth.

To maintain our Christian stability, the promise of a secure future anchors us so we can look forward with eager expectation. We can be of good cheer for the closer we get to the day of the Lord, the closer we are to the reward of eternity. This day with God, be inspired by this poem below:

Turn your focus to things above
and believe the answers are up high.
The mind might say give up now,
but hope whispers one more try.
 
Christ gives hope
and shapes your outlook
with promises made
and written in the Good Book.
 
Never lose heart but rejoice
with great anticipation
for rooms are being prepared
for eternal habitation.

The Lord is patient because He wants people to be saved. Pray for those you would like to see saved and believe there can be great growth in the number of those who accept His grace. Understand that with God, there are no boundaries.

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
