You’re chosen aliens, part of a real but unseen kingdom. Don’t conform to this world, but live holy lives within it, loving one another. The world will persecute you, and falsely accuse you, but confound them by continuing to bless them. Your gentleness and respect will win some over. Keep the perspective of the coming judgement and your future glory, keeping your eyes fixed on Jesus, who won us our salvation and is our example in everything.
Ralph explains that Peter urges us to understand we have wasted enough time living as others.
Focus on God.
Living in the context of the time we live in.
Living for another person in love
Living in praise of God.
Living in time when Jesus has brought about the beginning of the end.
When have you lived conscious about something is coming to an end?
Value the time.
Anaesthesia of the reality.
Be of sober mind so we might pray.
Focus on situation we are in.
