2 Peter 3:10-13 (HCSB)
10 But the Day of the Lord  will come like a thief;   on that day the heavens will pass away  with a loud noise, the elements will burn and be dissolved,  and the earth and the works on it will be disclosed.  11 Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, it is clear what sort of people you should be in holy conduct and godliness 12 as you wait for and earnestly desire the coming  of the day of God.  The heavens will be on fire and be dissolved because of it, and the elements will melt with the heat. 13 But based on His promise, we wait for the new heavens and a new earth,  where righteousness will dwell.

 Jesus will come back unexpectedly like a thief in the night. God will judge the sins of humanity by bringing fire to the whole Earth. Peter asks us what sort of people we should be living here on Earth since we know this day is coming? We should try and set aside all of our sinful nature and live a holy life. We should make different choices than the non-believers. This includes the way we act, think, words we use, etc. Once God comes back with fire, He will keep another promise and create a new heaven and new earth for His children.
