We’re Called To Be Holy

1 Peter 1:13-25

We are pulled and tempted and besotted by promises that lead us ever into a greater sin which is a loss of what it actually means to be fully human and fully alive. Early Church fathers explained the spiral of sin as a literal deterioration or loss of our humanity. We fail to be who God created us to be.

Conversely, the more that we are like Christ, full of His spirit, and synced to His will, the closer we come to the fuller or perfected version of the human creation and person that God created us to be. We are who we were created to be when we reflect Christ.

The apostle Peter reminds us that God calls us into the very real reality made possible by the incarnation of Christ in human form who was the God-man Jesus: fully man, yet fully God. Jesus is the mold by which each of us can live out a life of holiness through Christ’s power in us.
