                THE NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH
     But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless, and regard the patience of our Lord to be salvation.
                                                2 Peter 3:13-15a
     Through the prophetic word and through the teachings of the new testament, we, the followers of Jesus Christ, know that there will be a time when the Lord will return in power. He will come and destroy the nations and the devil's demons. Then new heavens and a new earth will be set up in which righteousness will dwell.
     Peter is encouraging all of Christ's followers to stay true to our calling. We must not allow the sufferings of being a Christian or the things of this world to keep us from following Him!
     In this translation, the word "diligent" is used to describe our pursuit of the Lord and His Kingdom. This is a word which describes the putting forth of strong effort to accomplish things. As we look forward to the next coming of Jesus, we must stay in peace, but we must also stay committed to Him!
                                                    Apostle James
