2 Peter 3:9 says:
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
As I was reading this verse. . .God stirred in me to make a statement and then ask you and me a question. . .which He wants us to ponder before we answer.
First, here’s the statement. . .God is not slack concerning His promises and neither should we be.
Second, here’s the question? Are we spiritual slackers?
The American Heritage Dictionary defines slacker as:
“Moving slowly; sluggish; lacking in activity; not busy.”
When it comes to activating and appropriating His promises into our daily life. . .God does not want us moving slowly. A lack of spiritual activity on our behalf will most certainly be a subject of conversation on Judgment Day.
