I Peter 1:17-25
God doesn't bless according to whim, He blesses us according to His laws.
Knowing the complete impartiality of God should cause you to have a higher regard for His power and authority. (Romans 2:6-7)
2. Obedience is the Right Response to the Goodness of God. (18-21)
The challenge is to live a life of integrity because God has already accepted you.
3. Obedience Equips You to Spread Goodness to Others. (22-25)
Justification happens when you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior.
Sanctification is the continued effect of God's Word.
Your obedience makes you a better person, and ultimately helps you make the world a better place.
Every time you obey God, it increases your capacity to love others with a pure love from the heart.
