And so, dear friends, while you are waiting for these things to happen, make every effort to be found living peaceful lives that are pure and blameless in his sight.
The things Peter is refering to is the passing away of the heavens and earth as we know them, and the judgement of all people by the Lord before He creates a new heaven and new earth. While we may not be around to personally witness this, Peter’s conclusion is that we need to keep in mind that there is a future in store for us where we are completely right with God and get to enjoy the beauty of His presence forever. And it is in light of this that we should live a life that is pleasing and honoring to God.
Lord I thank you for the forgiveness of my sins and that because of your forgiveness I can look forward to a future in heaven with you forever, free of sickness, pain and sin. Help me to live now in a way that honors you and shows the world around me your love, so they can also experience your forgiveness.
