But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18
The verse speaks of what Christians should do while waiting for the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. According to the context of this verse, there are those who question the credibility of Christ’s promise to return. This had greatly disturbed the believers. So Apostle Peter reminded them that a thousand years is only a day with the Lord and that the Lord is faithful in what He had promised. Then He reminded them that as they wait for His coming, they should live their lives in holiness and godliness, and grow in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As we wait for that glorious moment which God will decide, it is our responsibility as Christians to grow and to live a life pleasing to Him until He comes again.
