A new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.

2 Peter 3:13
But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.
The picture show’s tonights sunset from my window. Deep colours and a dark contrast suggest a deep sense of love and also a sense that God is still watching out for us making the earth beautiful at moments to try to cheer us up and give us hope.
What hope have we got to look forward to?
We in 2 Peter 3:13 we are told that we are to look forward to not only a new heaven – which can seem a bit of a booby prise (even though it is a wonderful place to be and we will dwell there eternally) because we have to die to get there – or perhaps that is what a non-believer may think. We are to hold to the assurance that we have eternal life through Jesus Christ.
The point we may forget is that we are the solution for this new earth and new heaven.
Dear Lord help me to hear your thought clearly and put them into practice. 
 
Amen
