A Promise Kept

An ancient promise still being kept

The other day a vee of birds passed overhead, heading south. Soon leaves will fall, the temperature drop, and a sweater will feel good.

After Noah’s Flood, God promised, “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” (Genesis 8:22). God is still keeping His promise.


An ancient promise that will be kept

“While the earth remains” implies the earth won’t always remain. God ended Noah’s world with the Flood. He will end ours by fire (2 Peter 3).

And in its place: “new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells” (v. 13).

Do you believe God will keep this promise too? If so, how then should we live? (vv. 11-14)
