Today's reading: 1 Peter 1:13-25
Before I jump into our passage for today, I have to say that I am really enjoying 1 Peter. For whatever reason, I tend to hang out more in the Books written by Paul (which are excellent), but Peter's words and style are hitting me refreshingly this week and I hope you are having a similar experience. Alright, now on to today's passage.
Peter puts before us a call to conduct ourselves rightly--"to be holy in all our conduct." But with this call he also provides us with some "hows" to living a holy life.
- Prepare our mind for action
- Be sober-minded
- Don't be conformed to our former ways
- Focus on and have hope in Christ's return
- Have reverence for what Christ did for us
- Live with hope and faith in God
