2 Peter 3:12-13

Looking forward to the day of God and hurrying it along. On that day, he will set the heavens on fire, and the elements will melt away in the flames. But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world filled with God’s righteousness.

Although God’s final judgment will be a devastating day for those opposed to God’s plans, those who belong to him can look forward to a new world. The old world will physically pass away and he will recreate a new heaven and a new earth. We have God’s promise on this.

This new world will be a vast improvement upon the world that exists currently. This world is filled with corruption, pain, sickness, abuse, hatred, and death. The new world will be FILLED with God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS. Everyone will live in harmony with God’s will and will always do the right thing. Now that’s a world worth looking forward to!

Reflection

Spend some time imagining what a world filled with God’s righteousness would look like.

Prayer

May I develop a deeper longing for the new world that you have promised, and prepared, for me to experience.
