2 Peter 3:11

11 In that way everything will be destroyed. So what kind of people should you be? You should live holy lives and serve God,

2 Peter 3:11 In-Context

9 The Lord is not slow in doing what he promised -- the way some people understand slowness. But God is being patient with you. He does not want anyone to be lost, but he wants all people to change their hearts and lives.
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The skies will disappear with a loud noise. Everything in them will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be burned up.
11 In that way everything will be destroyed. So what kind of people should you be? You should live holy lives and serve God,
12 as you wait for and look forward to the coming of the day of God. When that day comes, the skies will be destroyed with fire, and everything in them will melt with heat.
13 But God made a promise to us, and we are waiting for a new heaven and a new earth where goodness lives.
