Changed+Chosen, Be Holy, Not Weird

1 Peter 1:13-21

Choose holiness in the midst of suffering because it is…

  1. 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.
