Only one thing matters

His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3

This verse reminded me today that God has called me to a life goodness and righteousness before Him. Sometimes this can be an overwhelming thought as we look at all of our short comings and sin, but if we truly love God and we are genuinely seeking Him and His goodness above all else (just as my blog is named!) then we have all that we need. Nothing else really matters.

the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives .....we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness. 2Peter 3:10-13

As we are tempted to worry about many things. Let us not loose that one simple focus. Jesus is coming back. We are to live righteous and fruitful lives FOR him until that day comes. Everything else is rubbish in comparison. Unfortunately thought, the rubbish....that argument with my husband.....the misbehavior of my messy and disorganized house.....laundry......Christmas shopping.....all this rubbish overshadows the one good thing. Jesus will return. Am I making every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him? 2Peter 3:14 or am I overwhelmed and worried and letting other things take over?
