“PREPARE your minds for action, BE self-controlled. SET your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.” (v 13 NIV)
“As obedient children, let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God’s life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness. God said, ‘I’m holy; You be holy.'” (v 14-15 MSG)
Lord, I submit my thoughts to Your will.
I submit my actions to Your will.
I surrender my concern for the future to Your will.
I desire to obey You, to not be conformed to the ways of this world, nor to the desires I had before knowing You.
Shape my life to be like Your life.
Infuse me with Your energy.
Ignite in me a blazing fire of holiness.
Make me like Jesus–no matter what! Amen!
