2 Peter 3:11 – Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives.
You don’t have to understand all the implications of your decision when you choose to follow Jesus. You simply need to respond to His invitation and make a commitment to follow Him.
Your commitments shape your life more than anything else. Your commitments can develop you or they can destroy you, but either way, they will define you, because we become whatever we’re committed to.
It is at this point of commitment that most people miss God’s purpose for their lives. Many are afraid to commit to anything, and they just drift through life. Others make half-hearted commitments to competing values, which leads to frustration and mediocrity. Others make a full commitment to worldly goals, such as becoming wealthy or famous, and they end up disappointed and bitter.
Every choice has eternal consequences, so you need to choose wisely: “Since everything around us is going to pass away, we ought to live holy and godly lives.” (2 Peter 3:11).
Christlikeness comes from making Christlike commitments.
– Based on your commitments, what might people assume about you?
– What keeps you from committing to things that will help you develop Christlikeness?
– How can the urgency of 2 Peter 3:11 affect the way you make your commitments?
