How Should We Live?

Peter, in talking about the return of Christ and the Day of the Lord, asks a very important question. He wants us to think about how we live our lives. Knowing that Judgment Day is coming, how should we live? He wrote:

Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. ​- 2 Peter 3:11-12 (NIV)​

He says that we should live holy and godly lives. Since we don’t know when Jesus will return, we should live every single day in the expectation of this glorious event. We need to be ready for Him to come back at any given moment. That means living lives that resemble Jesus’ life. We should live lives of holiness, which means pure, and godly and that means marked by godliness or striving to look like God. This will not only please God, but will also present a consistent witness to a world of doubters who may yet believe in Christ.
