The Supreme Judge

Feb 4, 2024

Basic Scripture:

By which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. (2 Peter 3:6-7 NKJV)


The authors of the Bible draw a parallel between God’s role in overseeing humanity and the role played by judges in regulating human legal affairs. To ensure justice, the divine judge, as with human judges, devises punishments and rewards that are determined by the disclosed behavior.

In 2 Peter 3:6-7, the apostle Peter warns about the coming judgment of God. He reminds the readers that just as God once destroyed the world with a flood, He will also bring judgment upon the ungodly in the future. Peter emphasizes the certainty and inevitability of this judgment, stating that the heavens and earth are being reserved for fire.

Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? The text encourages us to live holy and godly lives as we look forward to the day of God . It’s a call to evaluate our lives and align our actions with our faith. Despite the warning of destruction, there is also a promise of a new heaven and a new earth where righteousness dwells. This gives us hope and motivates us to pursue righteousness in our daily lives.

While many today ridicule the idea of God’s judgment and Christ’s return, the Bible warns us that it is a reality that we must confront. As believers, we should take this warning seriously and strive to live in a way that is pleasing to God, knowing that one day we will all give an account of our actions.

Food For Thought:

God’s judgment is undoubtedly certain, yet He also offers a way out for those who remain in Him.
