The Forward Day by Day Meditation

Today's Meditation

THURSDAY, December 5

2 Peter 3:14-15a Therefore, beloved, while you are waiting for these things, strive to be found by him at peace, without spot or blemish; and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation.

Maybe you’ve seen or read or heard about the series of novels that depict life before and after the Rapture. This series and other books and media like it capitalize on our shared preoccupation with what is waiting on the other side.

The Second Epistle of Peter helps me shift my focus. Why not attend to life right here and now? I can do things that place me in closer alignment with the Spirit of God—praying, reading scripture, worshiping, blessing, sharing God’s love, resting, and abiding with Jesus.
