The passage calls for us to obedience and spiritual purity because God is Holy (pure). In our former lives we were controlled in ignorance by the passions of the flesh (sinful desire). However, because of the grace of Christ we should obey God. This should be accomplished by prepairing ourselves to obey, focusing on the Hope of our future grace (glorification), and by conforming ourselves to God's purity.

The work of salvation effecting our lives doesn't end after receiving Jesus into our hearts. It continues to save, not our hearts, but our minds from its old way of thinking. Let's invite the Word to explain how the Spirit transforms our minds through sanctification.

Exiles: Living Faithfully as Misfits
How should we think about what it means to be saved by God? As a great escape. Pastor Randy helps us understand that, as Christians, we have escaped from a futile way of life. We have escaped futility by faith in God through the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ in our place, and this should lead us to live the holy life that God intends for us: conducting ourselves in all things to please God and display and celebrate His greatness.
