“Knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, ‘Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.’ For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.”
This whole world is temporary; the “day of judgment” is coming!
It may not seem like that is true. So much time has passed since God made these promises. But remember that God set this world in motion and he is the One who can end it. And remember that he has already destroyed this earth once by flooding, so it should not astound us that he will destroy it by fire someday.
The Eternal Judge is reminding you today that his day of judgment is on its way, when he will judge those without Christ. Shouldn’t we be helping those people find Christ?
Pray that God will give you his passion for rescuing them.
