There are at least two ways to approach the fact that the Bible says Christ is going to return. One is to try to figure out all of the details and the sequence of events so that we can nail down the particulars. A lot of ink and toner has been applied to paper in pursuit of this objective. The second is to ignore all of the hype surrounding this as irrelevant.
Peter, inspired by the Holy Spirit, commands a third response. To live one’s life in light of the fact that Christ is going to return and at that return will hold His disciples accountable for the choices they have made on their life journey. Peter’s point of view is that it is not our career or family objectives that should drive our daily decisions but rather the reality of Christ’s sovereign return. Joel agrees.
How should that impact our day?
