How to Be Holy An Outline — 1 Peter @ Covenant Bible Church

The letter of 1 Peter contains many practical implementations of the brief exhortation in verse 16 to “be holy as the Lord is holy.”

In verses 17-21, Peter outlines exactly how one should aspire to realize this holiness, and the rest of the book is the practical outworking of this command.
