A Daily Devotional
About being rescued
2 Peter 2:7 and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives
of lawless men 8(for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in
his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)-- 9if this is so, then the Lord
knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of
judgment, while continuing their punishment. (NIV)
You will be rescued. However, your being rescued is dependent upon how faithful you
are, how righteous you are, how truly distressed you are by the lawlessness in your world.
It is easy to look the other way at sin, corruption, and lawlessness. It is easy to say
the fallen nature of the world you live in is not your problem. However, when your heart
is tuned to hear the voice of God and you resist temptation and live a godly and devout
life in Christ, you will be rescued. In Jesus love, you are made secure for an
eternity. Your rescue from this ungodly world may not occur until you get to leave your
physical body, but even if you have to wait that long, then the glory you experience will
erase every hurt and fill you with every joy.
