“Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder).”
Many today are talking about what the world's coming to. Perhaps we ought to change the question and ask, “Who’s coming to the world?” His name is the Lord Jesus. Many have a feeling that we’re coming to the climax of an age, and this generation may be the last generation. We may be that generation that will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. And Peter said to stir yourselves up. We get all excited about various achievements of men, whether in sports, business, or otherwise. When we witness one of these achievements, we stop and say, “That’s something.” We get excited about these accomplishments. Folks, I want to tell you something better than any achievement by people—Jesus is coming. We need to get excited about the things that really matter.
Spend time today looking up and reading various Scriptures on the Second Coming. Ask the Lord to stoke the fires of your heart with excitement over this promised return.
