Are you holy and godly? (2 Pet 3:11)

“Since all these things

Are to be dissolved

In this way,

What sort of persons

Ought you to be

In leading lives

Of holiness

And godliness?”

Τούτων οὕτως πάντων λυομένων ποταποὺς δεῖ ὑπάρχειν ὑμᾶς ἐν ἁγίαις ἀναστροφαῖς καὶ εὐσεβείαις,

This author said, “Since all (πάντων) these things (Τούτων) are to be dissolved (λυομένων) in this way (οὕτως), what sort of persons (ποταποὺς) ought (δεῖ) you (ὑμᾶς) to be (ὑπάρχειν) in leading lives of holiness (ἐν ἁγίαις ἀναστροφαῖς) and godliness (καὶ εὐσεβείαις)?”  This author pointed out that all things would be dissolved or done away with in this heat or fire.  In the meantime, what were they to do?  He answered his own question by pointing out that they should conduct their life in holiness and be God like.  The way to prepare for the end times was to lead a good and holy life.  Are you preparing for the day of the Lord by leading a holy life?
