2 Peter 3:9-11

"Do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.

Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming."

The Lord will return

Do you spend more of your time piling up possessions, or
striving to develop Christlike character?
It will not be a surprising day to a faithful Christian,
when the Lord returns.
However it will be sudden and terrible for those
who do not believe in Him.
