II Peter 3 talks about the return of Christ, the day when He comes to take those who love Him to heaven. I have looked forward to that day since I put my trust in Him when I was just a kid! I sometimes want to get complacent in my faith, to just sit back, hold and wait for Him. But I’ve got stuff He wants me to do in the waiting.
“So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with Him.” (v. 14)
I don’t want to meet Jesus with excuses on the tip of my tongue. I want to be at peace with my Lord.
