Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness…
2 Peter 3:11
What Sort of People?
Peter asks an interesting rhetorical question after describing the end of the world. If everything we know will be dissolved, what kind of people should we be? This question weighs heavily on me this week. How much of my time is spent with things that will ultimately dissolve and disappear? What sort of holy, godly life should I be living if I believe Jesus will come back and burn everything on the earth? It definitely makes me think, and I hope it makes you think as well. Remember, these questions shouldn’t scare us…Jesus has saved us. But they should probe our hearts and give the Holy Spirit opportunity to move us to action.
Speaking of action, has God opened doors to invite people to the Christmas Eve services? I gave an invite to the checker at Walmart yesterday. Today I went on Facebook and posted about Christmas caroling in our neighborhood (we hope to pass out invites as we carol). These are just small steps, but by God’s grace they will reach people with the good news that Jesus offers life.
Waiting on Jesus’ return with you,
