Therefore, prepare your minds for action;
be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace
to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. As
obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires
you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he
who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it
is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
1 Peter 1:13-16
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the
Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received
from God? You are not your own; you were bought
at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
