2 Peter 3:8 niv

Time was created for us.
We need its structure to make sense of our days.
God has no need of time. He has no beginning or end.
In eternity is where He lives.

Can you imagine no time constraints or limitations?
What do you think it will be like when you live in eternity?

2 Peter 3:3-4 niv

new orleans 086_pe

We all know those who are skeptics and mock what we believe.
They see only with their eyes and are skeptical
of anything they cannot see or touch.
We are to stand firm in our faith in the face of their antagonism.
We are messengers  of the Gospel.
We don’t have to convince them it’s true, God will see to it.

Do scoffers and mockers make you angry?  
Do you feel you have to convince people what you believe is truth?

Blessings thpatriciais day of grace,

2 Peter 1:10-11 lb

gate

If we work hard to become like Christ
we will be sure-footed on the path.
Our journey will take us to the gates of Heaven
and we will be welcomed into His Kingdom forever.

Does it seem all your hard work is for nothing and goes unnoticed?
Have you forgotten why you work and who is waiting for you at the gate? 

Blessings this day of grace,patricia

2 Peter 1:9 esv

If we don’t develop the qualities (verses 5-7)
God desires for us we will not mature in our faith.
We will be living as if we were never washed by the blood of Christ.
We will not see all that is in the present for we will be wandering in the past.

Are you developing the qualities that God wants for you?
How are you doing this?

2 Peter 1:8 gw

?????????

If we have the qualities that are in the previous verses, 5-7,
and we develop and use them
 we will be like a glass
that is always being refilled and is never empty.

Like a glass of a cool refreshing drink that revitalizes
not only ourselves but those we share it with.

Are you growing and using the qualities that are maturing in you?

Blessings this day of grace,patricia
