“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Peter 1:14-15




Do not be conformed to the desires

that you formerly had in ignorance.

Instead, as He who called you is holy,

be holy yourselves in all your conduct;

for it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”


– 1 Peter 1:14-15 (NRSV)






When we accept God’s call

and allow Him to come into our hearts,

we enter into a personal relationship with Jesus

and He changes us and renews us.

As He strips away our weaknesses,

we realise and admit

how ignorant and blind we were without Him.


Now that I can see,

I must resist going back to the dark,

to my old ways.


Now that I can see,

I want to…I must…

continuously strive to be righteous and holy.


The essentials of true holiness,

which a true Christian should focus on

so as to avoid getting side-tracked,


love for God and neighbour;

mercy and forgiveness;

as well as justice, faithfulness, and generosity.


And so,

holiness should be an interior disposition of our heart

– put it into practice.






Lord, help me put all I receive from You into practice.

Lord, make me holy.
