This world and all it contains is temporary and is facing destruction at some time in the future. But the good news is that its destruction makes way for a new and improved heaven and earth. In some ways it is like demolishing an old run down shack and replacing it with a mansion. As believers we should be looking forward to our new home. And as we do, we should live holy and godly lives now, which in some way serves to speed up the date of the remodel.
