1 Peter 1:13-25

NLT 13 So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. NIV 13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. NLT 14 So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. NIV 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. NLT 15 But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. NIV 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; NLT 16 For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.” NIV 16 for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy." NLT 17 And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. So you must live in reverent fear of him during your time here as “temporary residents.” NIV 17 Since you call on a Father who judges each man's work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear. NLT 18 For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. NIV 18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, NLT 19 It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. NIV 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. NLT 20 God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but now in these last days he has been revealed for your sake. NIV 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. NLT 21 Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory. NIV 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God. NLT 22 You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart. NIV 22 Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart. NLT 23 For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God. NIV 23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. NLT 24 As the Scriptures say, “People are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades. NIV 24 For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, NLT 25 But the word of the Lord remains forever.” And that word is the Good News that was preached to you. NIV 25 but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you.
