Song(s) :
To God be the glory

Revive, Thy work, O Lord
My Jesus, I love Thee

Passage(s) : 1 Peter 1:6, 1 Peter 2:12,20
, 1 Peter 3:16, 1 Peter 4:12,16,19

How do we live in an ever increasing hostile environment?
1 Peter 1:13 - 25 - To live a holy life

What does it mean to be holy?
To be like Jesus.
- Behave as He would have
- Do things as He would have done
- Speak as He would have spoken

The more we are like Christ, the more impact we will make to others.

We can only fully experience holiness when we really receive Christ into our lives. Having a new nature & let God have a big place in out lives.
v 14 - Leave the old nature. Let God have His ways in our lives.

Why should we live holy lives?
1. v 16 - Because God is holy.
- eg. Abraham / Moses / Daniel / Paul

2. v 13 - Jesus is coming back.
- With great power / glory. 2 Peter 3 : 11 - 12

3. v 17 - All out actions / deeds will be accounted for
- Romans 14 : 10, 2 Cor 5 :10

4. v 19 - We are purchased with the blood of Jesus Christ
- Only Jesus' blood could pay for our sins Titus 2:14

5. v 21 - Sitted in the glory, power and dominance
- One day He will call us to share this glory for eternity

6. v 24 - Because life is short

What is the value of our lives? It is what He has been prepared to pay for.
