In this sermon—our final large group of the semester—we hear Peter's last words to a suffering congregation. God is not ignorant, impotent, or far off. He left heaven for earth to suffer with us and for us, and He will come again to judge the living and the dead. But what on earth is He waiting for? For you! The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
