The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. — 2 Peter 3:9
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
God wants all people brought to repentance so they can receive his grace and live with him in glory. If that is God’s passion, how can we not make it our passion?
Father, I know that you hold the day of Jesus’ return in your hands, and the reason he waits to return is known only to you. However, dear Father, I also know that you want all people to come to know Jesus as their Savior. Please use me to share the message of salvation and the gift of your grace with someone around me this week. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
