Bible Reading: Isaiah 56 – 59; 2 Peter 3
Scripture: “They will say, ‘What happened to the promise that Jesus is coming again? From before the time of our ancestors, everything has remained the same since the world was first created?’ ” 2 Peter 3:4
Observation: All these Apostle Peter said will happened in the last days as it is happening presently. Questions being raised about the second coming of Jesus Christ as promised in Scriptures. However, we are reminded that God’s word never fails: by the word God created heaven and earth and are kept by the same word awaiting the day of judgement. God’s patience is rather for the sake of mankind as He wants all to come to repentance. The day of His return is not known by anyone—like a thief at night that comes unexpectedly. Therefore, all should come to repentance and live lives holy and acceptable before Him that we may escape judgement of the last day, which is bound to happen.
Application. I must not take God’s patience for granted. Since I do not know the day of His return, my life should be pleasing to Him whenever He returns so that I do not become a cast away.
Prayer: May my heart be humble before You; daily expecting Your return.
