1 Peter 1:13-16
13 Therefore, once you have your minds ready for action and you are thinking clearly, place your hope completely on the grace that will be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed. 14 Don’t be conformed to your former desires, those that shaped you when you were ignorant. But, as obedient children, 15 you must be holy in every aspect of your lives, just as the one who called you is holy. 16 It is written, You will be holy, because I am holy.

Be ready! Continue to learn and train, be champing at the bit so that, when the coach calls your number, you will be quick to enter the game. Be on your toes and don’t depend on the way things used to be. Instead, let your actions all reflect the Way of Yeshua — love, peace, and justice all wrapped up in wholeness of character.
