16 In the Scriptures God says, “Be holy, because I am holy.”[a]

17 You pray to God and call him Father, but he will judge everyone the same way—by what they do. So while you are visiting here on earth, you should live with respect for God. 18 You know that in the past the way you were living was useless.
