God’s Patient Promise

God’s Patient Promise

Scripture 2 Peter 3:1-9
It is not unusual for people to “scoff” at the events recorded in the Bible, or at the promises made in the Bible. Sinners deny the reality of final judgment, because they prefer to live according to their fleshly desires. Just because God has waited a long time without destroying the earth doesn’t mean that he never will. His “delay” gives people an opportunity to repent. Rather than denying it or being afraid of it, God’s faithful people can look forward to the “coming of the day of the Lord.”
