2 Peter 3:10-14 – Seek and Be Found

2 Peter 3:10-14
10
But 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.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12 Looking 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?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

-The Lord is coming back.  As surely as there is a sun in the sky, the truth of that statement is inevitable and unavoidable.  It will be a day of good and bad.  Good, in that the Lord will finally deliver creation from the pain of sin and death; bad, in that the Lord will finally bring full judgment on sin and those who abide therein.  Knowing all of this, Peter warns the people of God to watch for the day of the Lord’s coming.  But notice what Peter tells us in verse 14, “seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.”  Although we are doing the looking, Peter reveals that the Lord is looking for us as well.  We seek, yet He finds.  When the Lord comes looking for you, what will He find?
