As obedient children, do not conform to theevil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so BE HOLYIN ALL YOU DOSince you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed…but with THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST, a lamb without blemish or defect. (1 Pet. 1:14-19)

We are being instructed to be holy just as God is holy, no longer conforming to the evil desires we once had but in reverent fear, giving our all for the work of Jesus Christ our Lord who redeemed us with His precious blood. We are referred to as foreigners, why? Jesus said: If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its ownYOU DONOT BELONG TO THE WORLD, but I have chosen you out of the world …Father… THEY ARENOT OF THE WORLD, even as I am not of it.(John 15:19, 17:16)
