But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment. Since everything around us is going to be destroyed like this, what holy and godly lives you should live, looking forward to the day of God and hurrying it along. On that day, he will set the heavens on fire, and the elements will melt away in the flames. But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world filled with God’s righteousness. 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.
2 Peter 3:10-14 NLT
Before you draw your next breath, you could find yourself face to face with the Lord God Almighty. “Since everything around is going to be destroyed like this,” why do we invest so much of our time, heart, and soul in the things of the world. Sure I’m thankful that God has given us a wonderful wold to live in while we are here, but if we let ourselves get caught up in the things of this life and the things of this world, what will we leave unsaid and undone?
Our lives tell a story and they leave a message.
How will yours read?
