The Measurement of Being Slack (Part 3) (2 Peter 3:8-12)

Tommy BoringTommy Boring, January 31, 2016
Part of the 2 Peter 3 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

God is not slack concerning His promises. Some may think as so based on what they've seen or experienced. God has given all a book full of His promises to which some of those have been fulfilled. If we really believed that God is coming back, would we not get prepared? So is He slack or not? So why hasn't God come back? God is long-suffering. What is long-suffering? Long suffering is the act of loving beyond measure. Just as in Genesis, God declare an end to the people's evilness. God could have built an ark, He could have filled the ark full of animals and He could have ended the earth and started over with nothing but new. The reason God has not returned is because some of you are still lost and He loves you. God is not willing that any person should perish but that all would come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:8-12

8But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10But 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. 11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? (KJV)
