In this passage Peter reminds us that because God, who called us, is Holy, we should then conduct ourselves in holiness. But there is even greater news: where we have failed to be holy, Christ Jesus was holy in our place. And now God sees us as perfectly spotless, blameless, and holy in Christ. This is our hope that is ready for us, our hope that is holy, and our hope that was costly.
