3 Ways to Live a Holy Life According to St. Peter

1 Peter 1:13-17 (GNT): A Call to Holy Living
  1. Be obedient to God, and do not allow your lives to be shaped by those desires you had when you were still ignorant (14).
  2. Instead, be holy in all that you do …(15).
  3. Spend the rest of your lives here on earth in reverence for [God] (17).
Obedience, holiness, and reverence for God are three goals to which we should strive in our everyday living, imitating Christ in all things.

Loving God,
Please grant me the grace to be obedient, humble, and holy in all I do so that my living and actions of love and mercy can glorify you in this world. I pray in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen.
