Be holy! (1 Pet 1:15)


As he who called you

Is holy,

Be holy yourselves

In all your conduct.”

ἀλλὰ κατὰ τὸν καλέσαντα ὑμᾶς ἅγιον καὶ αὐτοὶ ἅγιοι ἐν πάσῃ ἀναστροφῇ γενήθητε,

This author said, “Instead (ἀλλὰ), as he who called you (κατὰ τὸν καλέσαντα ὑμᾶς) is holy (ἅγιον), be holy yourselves (καὶ αὐτοὶ ἅγιοι) in all your conduct (ἐν πάσῃ ἀναστροφῇ γενήθητε).”  This author had a simple plea for his readers.  God the holy one had called them to holiness.  Thus, they should be holy in all their conduct and activities, because God is holy.  Do you try to be holy?
