"Just A Closer Walk With Thee"
|Oil Painting by Jackie Claflin
|1 Peter 1:13-21
Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be
self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be
given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. As obedient
children, do not conform to the evil desires you had
when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who
called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is
written: "Be holy, because I am holy."
Since you call on a Father who judges each man's
work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in
reverent fear. For you know that it was not with
perishable things such as silver or gold that you were
redeemed from the empty way of life handed down
to you from your forefathers, but with the precious
blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
He was chosen before the creation of the world, but
was revealed in these last times for your sake.
Through him you believe in God, who raised him
from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith
and hope are in God.
