As He who called you is holy,
you also be holy in all your conduct. 

You know how we exhorted … and charged every one of you … that you would walk worthy of God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory. § You may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. § Being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. § Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

1 Peter 1:15; 1 Thess. 2:11–12; 1 Peter 2:9;
Eph. 5:8–11; Phil. 1:11; Matt. 5:16; 1 Cor. 10:31


Ask Me of things to come concerning My sons;
and concerning the work of My hands, you command Me. 

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes.” … Thus says the Lord God: “I will also let the house of Israel inquire of Me to do this for them.”

If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.

Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have what- ever he says.

Isa. 45:11; Ezek. 36:26–27, 37; Matt. 18:19–20; Mark 11:22–23
