Living in Light of Christ (1 Peter 1:13-21)Mike Yates, October 23, 2016
Part of the 1 Peter series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
I. Because of the grace already received, fix your hope on future grace (1 Peter 1:13).
II. Because the Father is holy, imitate God’s holiness (v. 14-16).
III. Because of our Father’s righteousness and the price of our redemption, live in godly fear (v. 17-21).
-- Why fear?
-- What is this God-honoring fear?
-- Where does this fear lead us?

1 Peter 1:13-21
13 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. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, 15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 17 And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, 18 knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 20 He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you 21 who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
