The Upper Hand

3 Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. 4 They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” 5 But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. 6 By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. 7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

2 Peter 3:3-7

This passage could have been written last week, it is so relevant.

Usually, the non-believers are the scoffers in our society. The more they scoff and mock, the more we realize how right God is and are able to firmly plant our feet in His truth.

Mockers are going to mock. Yes, we try to rebut them when we can but they’re doing what they’re supposed to be doing in a life without God.

We pray for their souls. Usually it’s futile to try to win an argument against them because they’re not likely to change their minds in public.

But you know you have the upper hand because truth is on your side.
