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 22-25, Peter reminds us that our blessed regeneration is of an everlasting, imperishable seed. Because this world is temporary, and there really is an eternity, we can face anything with God’s help and power.
Peter quotes the Old Testament chapter of Isaiah 40 and we are reminded that we are to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
