Here’s a couple nuggets from my study of the end of 2 Peter, which we’ll dive into tonight. This is from the commentary on 2 Peter and Jude by Peter Davids, and he’s discussing 2 Peter 3:11:
There is no reason to adjust one’s life to the values and mores of this age of the world, for this age is coming to an end.
It would be like investing in a firm that was about to crash.
Rather, one ought to be living now the lifestyle of the promised coming age, a lifestyle that will mark one out as a person who belongs to that age and will make the coming judgment a welcome event rather than a dreaded one.
The other commentary I’m reading says it in one sentence:
Since the present world, the scene of human wickedness, is to disappear completely and be replace by a new world, the home of righteousness…be the kind of people who will be able to live in that new world.
