Not Slow in Keeping His Promises
2 Peter 3:8–10
December 7, 2014


I. God does not reckon time the way we do. 2 Peter 3:8, Psalm 90:4

II. Christ’s delay is a mark of God’s patience. 2 Peter 3:9

III. What does is mean that God is “not wishing that any should perish…”?

IV. When He comes, it will be without warning! 2 Peter 3:10, Matthew 24:42–44

Questions for Reflection:
How important is the second coming of Christ to believers today? How important should it be?
What reason does Peter give for the seeming delay of Christ’s return?
What does this passage tell us about God?
Given that Christ could return at any time, how should we then live?
