Waiting in Peace

Waiting in Peace

As we wait for Jesus to return and for him to bring us home to a new heaven and earth, where righteousness is at home, Peter encourages us to wait patiently and peacefully, reminding us that we have the time to find peace in all aspects of our lives – with the tragedies of our past, with unmet expectations and goals, with our failures, with those who have failed us, with our enemies, with our families, and with everything. We have been given the opportunity to wait, and Peter reminds us to wait with peace.

As you read 2 Peter 3:8-15a ask yourself these questions. Talk about them at your dinner table.

  1. How often do you think about the return of Jesus?
  1. What do you do while you wait?
  1. What does it mean to be found blameless when Jesus returns?

Our other scriptures for the week include:

Isaiah 40:1-11, Psalm 85:1-2, 8-13, Mark 1:1-8

We will be using this Order of Worship for our morning virtual services.
