1 Peter 1:15–16 (NRSV)
.....as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; 16 for it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
Hebrews 10:26–27 (NRSV)
26 For if we willfully persist in sin after having received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries.
2 Peter 1:9 (NRSV)
9 For anyone who lacks these things is nearsighted and blind, and is forgetful of the cleansing of past sins.
1 Peter 1:2 (NRSV)
2 …….have been chosen and destined by God the Father and sanctified by the Spirit to be obedient to Jesus Christ and to be sprinkled with his blood: May grace and peace be yours in abundance.
2 Peter 1:3–4 (NRSV)
3 His divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
2 Peter 1:4 (NIV)
4 ……. he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature…….
2 Peter 1:5–8 (NRSV)
5 For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, 7 and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love. 8 For if these things are yours and are increasing among you, they keep you from being ineffective and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
