“The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare” 2 Peter 3:10. When we read about the finality of this world, we take comfort that we are believers in God and have accepted His saving grace through Jesus Christ. However, it is not enough to go through the motions of life, knowing we are on our way to a better place.
‘God’s word tells us that when we see Jesus we will be like Him. Because Jesus is Holy and we will be completely holy when we see Him, the logical goal for every believer is to pursue holy living now. While pursuit of Holiness in our daily living is deemed logical, as a follower of Christ Jesus …we receive it in obedience to God for it is God’s command… “But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy”1 peter 1: 15-16. God has not only commanded us to be holy, He commissioned us to witness for Him. Words, deeds and attitudes that reflect God’s character reveal Him to the watching world.’
Confession of faith in Jesus Christ carries weight only when accompanied by the proof of a transformed life.
