1 Peter 1:13-25View Full Chapter
Be Holy 13Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. 14As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;
16for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
21Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
22Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.
24For, “All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall,
25but the word of the Lord endures forever.”
