For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. Ephesians 1:4

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:9-10

But  as He who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy. Peter1:15-15-16 quoting Leviticus 11:44-45

I appeal to you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present you bodies as living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Romans 12:1

But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written “Be holy, because I am holy. 1 Peter 1:15-16

No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. I Corinthians 9:27

Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.  Because of these , the wrath of God is coming.  You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.  But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.  Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self  with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in image of its Creator. Colossians 3:5-10

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth bucked around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the Gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.  And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep praying for all the saints. Ephesians 613-18

But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. Hebrews 3:13

Let us strive with all our hearts to glorify God and Obey him.  Why?  Because Jesus satisfied God’s anger toward us and gave Christ’s righteousness making us holy in God’s sight.  And because  Pa Pa and Jesus sent the Holy Spirit into us to help us to live holy lives.   Let us keep in step with the Holy Spirit.
