Day 30 Theme: Future Things
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness– 2 Peter 3:11

The certain and approaching end of this life, and this earth, should be for us like a warning sign along the highway. When we see a “Dead End” road marker, we know that it is there so that we will alter our current course of action, and make changes appropriate to the warning.

Likewise, Peter says, knowing beforehand that this world is coming to a soon and definite end should cause us to consider the course of our life. Shouldn’t we have different ambitions, actions, and affections than those who pretend that this world will last forever? Shouldn’t the temporariness of earth-treasure cause us to seek after the inflammable riches of heaven?

Shouldn’t the holiness and consuming fire of our God engulf our hearts with a desire for purity and godly passions? Shouldn’t the rottenness of this world turn our stomach and turn us to the perfections of Christ?

Seeing (have you seen it, by faith?) that all these things will dissolve like smoke into thin air, what kind of person should you be?
