Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
The Apostle Peter explained to us, the Church, that God is not quick to judge us on the spot. Instead he is PATIENT with us. He woos us in hopes that we will make a “Turn Around” for our own good. He wants all of us on the planet to go to heaven.
It’s hard to believe, because of the way the world has painted our great God, but do you realize that Jesus wants EVERYONE to go to heaven? Peter said in this verse, “God is not willing that anyone should perish.” That means that daily the Lord does everything in His power to love us to Him. It’s as if the Lord Himself has a rope around our waist, and with everything He’s got He’s pulling us away from the edge of destruction. BUT He will never force us to serve and trust Him. He doesn’t force His love on us, nor does He make us love Him back. Love is a heartfelt decision. In a million different ways Jesus has forever made His decision on our behalf to love, love, love us. No matter what, Love is His decision when it comes to you and me. No matter how much we reject Him, He doesn’t reject us because He is, after all, “Jesus Our PATIENT Savior!”
I can’t thank you enough for the love You have displayed toward me since I can remember being alive. I’m thankful that I have You! You are my PATIENT Savior. Amen
