Peter gives his readers a encouragement to live peaceful lives; lives that are pure and blameless. The context is within a time of political and social turmoil where the persecuted Christians are wondering what has happened to Christs return to put an end to the pain.
Its interesting in reading 2 Peter 13-15
2Pe 3:13 But God has promised us a new heaven and a new earth, where justice will rule. We are really looking forward to that!
2Pe 3:14 My friends, while you are waiting, you should make certain that the Lord finds you pure, spotless, and living at peace.
2Pe 3:15 Don’t forget that the Lord is patient because he wants people to be saved. This is also what our dear friend Paul said when he wrote you with the wisdom that God had given him.
It is possible to live a peaceful life within the midst of turmoil and strife and its through our peaceable lifestyles that we truly make known the love of the Lord towards those who are in need of his salvation.
