In response to the news of our Great Salvation in the first 12 verses of this letter, Peter now turns to describe the only appropriate response to such Good News. The overarching imperative in verse 13 is: 'set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at His coming'. Underneath this banner, Peter goes on to speak of 3 ways in which this hope is lived out in the life of one who truly believes - 1) Be Holy, because God is Holy; 2) Live in reverent fear, because of the very high cost of your salvation - the precious blood of Jesus; 3) Love each other deeply and incessantly, because of the enduring Word of God. May we have ears to hear and hearts that are ready to respond to these challenges from Peter!
