Waiting patiently (2 Peter 3:1-14)

Murray Lean, October 1, 2017
Part of the Individual Message series, preached at a Sunday Morning service


Patience is not something that comes easily to most of us. Yet so much of life involves waiting... waiting for rain (especially if you’re a farmer), waiting for Mr or Mrs Right to come along, waiting for an answer to a prayer... and so on. One particular test of our patience is the second coming of Jesus Christ, now 2000 years since it was first predicted by Jesus Himself. Some people have given up their faith and even become cynical because of this delay. But according to Peter, this is a short-sighted view. God’s plans still are firmly on track and He is showing patience Himself during this waiting period so that more people might hear and respond to the gospel. If evangelism is that important to God, what about us?
