Advent 2 B - 2 Peter 3:8-15

2 Peter 3:8-15
So how are we to “regard the patience of the Lord as salvation” while the rest of the world is toast when the thief in the night day of the Lord arrives as a not so good surprise. Even if we are confident of our reserved seat in the forever future we can hardly sit still when it comes to those for whom God’s infinite patience will one day run out. Lives of holiness and godliness are only holy and godly in so much as they are lived for the sake of those who are not intimate with the peace and patience of God. And so God’s desire that none perish may dove-tail with our own or at least for the “none” that we know which is why waiting patiently is not the same as passively waiting
