The apostle Peter writes of how to live — in light of Christ’s coming.
I Peter 1:13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (NASB)
Peter is issuing a call to anticipate the glorious future promised by our Lord! He says prepare yourself for the Lord’s coming and don’t be tied to the present world – be heavenly minded . . . live expectantly. Don’t be addicted to worldly living and worldly tastes – realize your citizenship is in heaven!
Exercise self-control, oversee your priorities. All that Christ has done for us in providing so great a salvation, should create within us a hunger, a passion for what is yet unfulfilled until Christ comes again!
