Return Flight Delayed – 2 Peter 3:7-15

Return Flight Delayed – 2 Peter 3:7-15

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise

What do we know about God?

Attributes of the Promise Keeper:

  1. Eternal – timeless Sovereign (8)

A day like a thousand years

  1. Patient – long-suffering Deliverer (9)

He is patient with you

  1. Just – righteous Judge (10-12)

That day will bring about destruction

  1. Redeemer – restoring Savior (13-15)

A new heaven and a new earth

Benediction – Psalm 90:1-4, 12-14 (a prayer of Moses)

Lord, you have been our dwelling place through all generations.

Before the mountains were brought forth, or before you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. You return people to dust and say, “Return, O children of mortality.” For a thousand years in your sight are but like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night…

…So teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Return, O LORD! How long will it be? Have mercy on your people! Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast, unfailing love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.”
