Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
-1 Peter 1:13-17
Many of our problems stem from a mistaken idea of who God is and what he’s like. If we feast on the negative and find ourselves saying, “Oh, like that’s really going to happen,” or, “That’s just not the kind of world I live in,” about some positive suggestion or possibility, then we’ll first have to undergo a moral shift in our thinking.

When Levi was called from the receipt of custom and Peter from his nets, there was no doubt that Jesus meant business. Both of them were to leave everything and follow. Again, when Peter was called to walk on the rolling sea, he had to get up and risk his life. Only one thing was required in each case-to rely on Christ’s word, and cling to it as offering greater security than all the securities in the world.
― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship
