Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,
II Peter 3:11
If you knew Jesus would return today, would you do anything differently? Peter’s words challenge us to be ready for His coming.
He points out that all things in this world will one day be dissolved or pass away. In light of this reality, Peter offers a clear directive: we are called to live in “holy conduct and godliness.” What does this mean for us in our daily lives?
Living in holy conduct means striving for a life of moral integrity and purity. It involves making choices that align with God’s values and principles. It means treating others with kindness, honesty, and respect. It means seeking to live a life that honors God in all aspects.
Living in godliness entails nurturing a deep and meaningful relationship with God. It means seeking to know Him more through prayer, studying His Word, and spending time in His presence. It means imitating the character of Christ, growing in love, compassion, and humility.
Are you living in holy conduct and godliness? Are you allowing our faith to transform your daily actions and decisions?
Remember that the choices we make today have a lasting impact. The pursuit of holiness and godliness is not about perfection but about progress.
Lord, help me be mindful of how temporary this world is and the importance of holy conduct and godliness. Guide me in my daily life, empowering me to live in a way that reflects Your love and grace. In Jesus’ name, amen.
