Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:13)
1 Peter 1
Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, we are saved from ourselves and are being sanctified through His spirit towards holiness. But we are still living in a world that refuses to believe in the existence of God and does not acknowledge His authority. Therefore, we need to be set apart from the world and lead holy lives. This can be very difficult in this life, but the future hope is that God will save us from this world by taking us to be with Him. In the meantime, I must be diligently waiting for Him and actively obeying Him. Father, thank you for saving me from myself. I know that you are going to take me out of this world to be with you. Please help me to prepare my mind for action and be sober minded that I may live a holy life in this world.
