2 Peter 3:11-13

11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.[b] That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.

  1. We aren’t just asked to live holy and Godly, but to live this way looking for the day of God and His fulfillment of His promises. It is hard to live day to day looking into the unknown future, but if His word is real to us and we can literally expect Him any day of our lives, our decisions should reflect His impending return.
