    C. The Spirit (it’s in His name: the Holy Spirit!)

II. “Be holy, for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:13-16)

    A. The children of Israel (Leviticus 11:44, 45; 19:2; 20:7, 26; Deuteronomy 7:1-6)

    C. It is a daily decision (Colossians 3:12-13)
    D. Imitating our High Priest (Hebrews 7:26)

      1. Harmless (Matthew 10:16; Philippians 2:14-15)
      2. Undefiled (Psalm 119:1)
      3. Separate from sinners (1 Corinthians 15:33-34)
