Sketches of Four Hundred Sermons
2 Peter 3:13-14
Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.…
I. PERSONS ADDRESSED. "Wherefore, beloved," etc.
1. Beloved of God. That the people of God are beloved by Him, we infer from the titles by which He distinguishes them (Deuteronomy 33:12; Nehemiah 13:26; Daniel 9:23; Malachi 3:17; Romans 9:25).
2. Beloved of each other.
II. EVENTS ANTICIPATED. "Ye look for such things."
III. A CHARGE GIVEN. "Be diligent." Diligence is opposed to idleness, slothfulness, or inattention.
