2 Peter, Day 3 Readings

Waiting for the End   

Today's reading concludes the second letter of Peter by encouraging Christians to remember and celebrate the promise of a new heaven and new earth after the coming Day of the Lord.  Some may easily wonder why Jesus hasn't returned yet; however, they must be patient and remember that God's time is not experienced as human time.  Rather than being led astray by false teachers, Christians should simply focus on living good and faithful lives, holding on to the promises of Jesus for the coming age.

Read 2 Peter 3:1-18  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
