Be Holy – 1 Peter 1:13-16

Being holy in the midst of a world that has little interest in the things of God can be challenging.  Being holy instead of following my own desires can be challenging as well.  But if my hope is set on the grace to be brought to me when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming then I will be choosing to keep an alert and sober mind, will not conform to the desires I had in the past, and will set myself apart to serve my master as he sees fit.
