1 Peter 1:13-21  "Be Holy"

As Christians we know this world is not our home.  God has called us to be a new creation.  This makes us different from the world around us.  His call on our life is to be holy.  We need to know that on our own this is an impossibility.  Only God is holy and for us to be holy we need to have His power and that comes by the Holy Spirit living in us.  In a human this holiness is not perfection as found in Christ Jesus.  No human can live perfectly, but we can, by the Holy Spirit's power, live a life consistent with Christian love.  This holy living is displayed by God's grace in us, even in times of our failures.  Live a life as close to Jesus and people will see Him in us.  That is being holy!
