The Day of the Lord

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

Ok, that sounds a little bleak. But the chapter doesn't end there.

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

YES! As Christians, those hidden in Christ, we have hope. Heaven is our home. Let us live as ambassadors to the heavenly kingdom. 
Welcoming, encouraging, compelling those who are lost to come in while there is still time.

For the Day of the Lord will come.
Be Ready

17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
