DIFFERENT VALUES IN AN UNHOLY CULTURE
Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled, set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 17 Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear. 1 Peter 1:13-17
God did not call you to be .
God called you to be .
Hágios—holy, set apart, different, pure.
Questions for Reflection:
- What are three areas I struggle most trying to fit in?
- When is a time I put my happiness above God’s call for holiness?
- What are the biggest ways that I’m different from the world?
- What is the area that God wants me to be different?
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
1 Peter 1:18-21
