“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.”- 2 Peter 3:10
One of the things I struggle with in life is procrastination. I have been told by coworkers and family that I thrive off of extra stress. I would tend to agree. Procrastination is fine in some things, but not when it comes to faith in Jesus Christ. To many say they will look to Jesus at the 11th hour only to die at 1030.
Today’s verse says he will come like a thief. A thief does not come by knocking on the door, but coming in unexpectedly. As Christians we should be living our lives in such a way that demonstrates good and Godly living. Along with our words our lives must be a living example. The day that today’s verse speaks of is coming quickly, and we do not know when it is. That is why we need to be prepared now. Place your life squarely in the hands of the Jesus, live for him, and help prepare others for that day.
