“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35 ESV)
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.” ~ Romans 5:1-2
A little boy was in a relative’s wedding. As he was coming down the aisle, he would take two steps, stop, and turn to the crowd. While facing the crowd, he would put his hands up like claws and roar.
So it went, step, step, roar, step, step roar, all the way down the aisle. The crowd was near tears from laughing so hard by the time the little boy reached the pulpit. The little boy, however, was getting more and more distressed from all the laughing, and was also near tears by the time he got to the pulpit. When asked what he was doing, the child sniffed and said, “I was being the Ring Bear.”
God, Time, and Promises
God dwells in eternity and time means nothing to Him (2 Peter 3:8). However, His word and His promises mean everything to Him. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).
The Lord promised that there is coming a time when this earth and everything in it will be destroyed (2 Peter 3:10). The end of the earth and the dissolving of all material things prompted the statement of 2 Peter 3:11, in which the Bible teaches, “Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness?”
Are you the person you should be?
