CI 2018 “MORPHING TIME”
1 Peter 1:13-16
13 Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” (NIV)
So roll up your sleeves, put your mind in gear, be totally ready to receive the gift that’s coming when Jesus arrives. Don’t lazily slip back into those old grooves of evil, doing just what you feel doing. You didn’t know any better then; you do now. As obedient children let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God’s life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness. God said, “I am holy; you be holy.”
The Powers Rangers were chosen, they were set apart from all other youth and given awesome power to be the change for good in the world.
God has called us out, God wants us to be apart so we can: 1. Know God’s passionate love and Holiness for ourselves and then, 2. To be agents of blessing in a broken world that needs good news, that needs healing and love.
So although the charge to, “Be Holy for I am Holy” sounds heavy and extremely hard-it is not impossible. We have God the Father, The Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ- the fullness of God helping us to reach it and we have each other.
