This past couple of week, I have been studying 1 Peter. I have been preaching through it verse by verse. We are now into verses 13-16.
Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.” (NKJV)
I have been challenged by these verses. Is all my conduct holy? These are verses can get right to the heart of our lives and what drives us. What a clear passage of scripture for our lives spiritually. We need more intimacy with Jesus. How desperately I need Him today. Be blessed!
