Willfully Ignoring Creation
2 Peter 3:5
The Upward Look

“But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water.” 2 Peter 3:5 NIV
The mockers and scoffers have chosen to deliberately forget or ignore God’s work throughout history beginning with creation. They belittle the fact that God created the heavens and the earth simply by speaking them into existence. These skeptics choose to ignore God and His great power to create. Instead they mock and harass believers who proclaim Jesus and His coming again to judge the world. This harassment continues today by those who ignore God, His creation power, and His coming judgment of sin.
Lord Jesus, I am amazed at Your great power that created the universe. I am even more amazed that I am saved from judgment and cleansed of sin by Your grace and mercy.
