1 Peter 1:13-21
Choose holiness in the midst of suffering because it is…
- The call of every Christ follower.
1 Peter 1:13-15
If you are going to pursue holiness, you must understand what it is
- Holiness is a mindset (1 Peter 1:13)
- Obedience is the fruit of that mindset (1 Peter 1:14)
- Holiness is the clear expectation of God (1 Peter 1:15-16)
How do we grow our hunger for holiness?
- Reverent fear in the present (1 Peter 1:17)
Why holiness is worth pursuing
- Future evaluation and rewards (1 Peter 1:17)
- Evidence of your citizenship and freedom (aimless conduct) (1 Peter 1:18)
- Humble gratitude (1 Peter 1:18-19)
Suffering is a season, but the shame and consequences of not choosing holiness can last a lifetime.
