A Plea for Holy Living
1 Peter 1:13-16 (CJB)

1Pe 1:14 (CJB) As people who obey God, do not let yourselves be shaped by the evil desires you used to have when you were still ignorant.
1Pe 1:15 (CJB) On the contrary, following the Holy One who called you, become holy yourselves in your entire way of life;
1Pe 1:16 (CJB) since the Tanakh says, “You are to be holy because I am holy.”

This word points us back to our salvation that Peter has just talked about in the previous verses. Because Christians have such that great salvation

When the soul is regenerated and the Holy Spirit moves in, Life is no longer business as usual.
