June 17 - 1 Peter 1-2

Read: 1 Peter chapters 1 and 2 (CEB, NIV, NRSV)

Reflection Question: 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.  But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy.  For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:14-16)  What does it mean to you to strive to be holy?  How does that play out in a practical way?
