Scripture promises a new heaven and a new earth for followers of Christ. Peter reminds us of how this promise should impact our lives today. The goals that we are striving for in the future will always impact our choices in the present. Knowing that we will one day see Christ should motivate us to live holy lives here and now. Are we looking forward to that day, and are we living expectant, intentional holy lives in light of it?
Discovering Your God-Given Identity
Have you ever really asked “Who am I?” In Christ Jesus you are loved, forgiven, chosen, a new creation, not condemned, more than a conqueror, God’s workmanship, a work in progress, provided for, and victorious. You are who God says you are and you are unique, a friend of God who created you for a purpose and in Christ you have an identity.
