Are You Doing Your Best? (Part 5) (2 Peter 3:11-18)Tommy Boring, February 14, 2016
Part of the 2 Peter 3 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
One can compare themselves to others, preachers, friends and family. Can you honestly say that you're doing your best for God?
Do you believe the word of God? Almost all church members say they believe the word of God. The scripture says that whatever you do, do it the best that you can do. We mostly put more effort into worldly items. God's Word clearly says that we can do all things through Him, so why do we keep making excuses as to why we can't do something for Him? People attend church for various reasons, one is because it's just something one does on Sunday's. But God knows why you attended and where your heart is during the service.
1 Cor 2:4; Col 6:4, if you know God is coming back how should your conversations be? Just thinking back in the past week, was your actions, words and willingness of God? There are many people that really work but they work for the check. They never do their very best, just enough to get the paycheck.
What type of person should you be knowing that God is coming back? The answer is the very best you can be. The problem is that you don't want to "pay" to do your best. All around us we have people that are addicted to this world in one way or another. Just getting by for Christ will not persuade a persons addiction. But not only that, if you don't give your best, you've made a choice to sin.
Is it ok for the preacher to live any way they'd want to live? Why? God expects just as much from a church member as He does a preacher.

2 Peter 3:11-18
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? 13Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 15And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17Ye 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. 18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. (KJV)
