Holy God: My Calling

My Calling:

Love
Purified by truth.
Love
Purified by obedience.
Love
One another deeply.
Love
From the heart.

Be gone
From me.
Be gone
Ignorance from me.
Be gone
From me
Be gone.
Wickedness is no longer my master.

Grace
Is the hope to cling to.
Grace
Given through Christ.
Grace
Is the power to which we cling.
Grace
Is the promise given.

Be gone
From me malice.
Be gone
Hypocrisy and envy.
Be gone
Deceit and slander.
Be gone
From me forever.

Be Holy;
Be self controlled and active.
Be Holy;
Do not conform.
Be Holy;
Live in reverent fear.
Be Holy
For God is Holy.

(For it is written,
“Be Holy as I am Holy”
And so shall it ever be
Forbid it, LORD, forbid it
That Your people reject it
Let it never be)

“13Therefore, 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. 14As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
17Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. 18For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, 19but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
22Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart. 23For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. 24For,

“All people are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
25but the word of the Lord endures forever.”

And this is the word that was preached to you.”
“1Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.” ~ 1 Peter 1 and 2
