Sunday Sermon Series - Second Peter 3:1-10

Hello everybody! Today I have a drawing from last Sunday (June 19, 2022). The message centered on Jesus promise to come back, and is taken from Second Peter chapter three. You can listen to it here.

Second Peter Chapter 3
Pastor Andrew mentioned the oft heard quote from children on roadtrips "Are we there yet?" I had just the day before heard that line several times over as our family traveled down to Salem to spend the day with family. So it struck a cord with me, and became the focus of my illustration. We (especially me these days) as Christians are asking ourselves, and God through prayer "Jesus, are you coming back yet? Is it time?" Are we there yet?

In these verses we are assured that Jesus will come back. We are encouraged to remember the words of the prophets, and to remember that scoffers will come. They (scoffers) will mock and ridicule those who believe. We are also called to be patient because in the mean time as God is working so that all should reach repentance.

Peter also references the flood of Noah, which I find interesting as these days some doubt the Biblical account of the flood. If you profess to be a Christian both the old and new testaments reference the flood. There is also mention here of the day of judgment, and the destruction of the ungodly, as happened at the time of the flood.

This pencil sketch was done with a Pentel .7mm P207 mechanical pencil in a Pentalic Sketchbook on 70lb paper. I hope you enjoyed this post, and that it encouraged you, made you think, or challenged you, and that you will read more about Peter's final letter to the church in 2nd Peter. God bless you, and have a great day! --Ryan
