For you are a temple of the living God. Even as God said, “I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”  (17)  Therefore “‘Come out from among them, and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘Touch no unclean thing. I will receive you.”

  • You Should Be Like Christ

1 John 3:2-3 “Beloved, now we are children of God, and it is not yet revealed what we will be. But we know that when he is revealed, we will be like him; for we will see him just as he is.  (3)  Everyone who has this hope set on him purifies himself, even as he is pure.”

1 Peter 2:21-23  “For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving you an example, that you should follow his steps,  (22)  who didn’t sin, “neither was deceit found in his mouth.”  (23)  Who, when he was cursed, didn’t curse back. When he suffered, didn’t threaten, but committed himself to him who judges righteously.”

  • You Should Be The Example
