Day 32 1 Peter 1:13-16

“Holiness, it’s what I long for!”

“So think clearly and exercise self-control. Look forward to the special blessings that will come to you at the return of Jesus Christ. Obey God because you are His children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of doing evil; you didn’t know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God-who chose you to be his children-is holy. For He Himself has said, “You must be holy because I am holy.”(1 Peter 1:13-16)

“So think clearly and exercise self-control.” Beloved, never under estimate the power of obedience, especially when you hear voice of the Lord. God is calling for a people who are going to be Faithful and Diligent in the His service. “Obey God because you are His children.” As it were, when I lived in the world, I sought after worldly things making me a child of the great deceiver, but when I found the truth of the Lord and conformed to His ways, I became a Child of God. “Don’t slip back into your old ways of doing evil; you didn’t know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God-who chose you to be his children-is holy.”

I know for many people, living a righteous life is a struggle. To totally transform yourself to a new creation and cutting old ties that are pulling you back into a life of sin is not easy. But what is even worse is when the Lord has delivered you from a situation and you find yourself running back to it when times are tough. Just like you have built your life in the world, you have to build one in the Spirit. For when you were unsaved, you lived your life trying to satisfy the Flesh. But now God has entered into your Life, your life goals should be satisfying the things of the Spirit. “For He Himself has said, “You must be holy because I am holy.”
