Something New Tomorrow!
Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
2 Peter 3:13
The year ends with a world in turmoil, sudden destruction possible. Peter tells us of a coming catastrophe that sounds like an atomic holocaust. How up-to-date,”…the elements shall melt with fervent heat…”(3:10)! But the Christian is looking tonight not just for a new year but a new age—new heavens and earth where righteousness dwells. “Seeing then that all these things shall dissolve, what manner of persons ought ye to be…diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (3:11, 14). While the world drinks and dances into the New Year to spend tomorrow with a hangover, let the Christian meet it on his knees and meet tomorrow with a hallelujah!
