Most people fail to hope in God because the false allurement of the world is too strong. Christians of all people must keep watch out over their lives by hoping in a Holy God as the foundation of their joy and happiness in the times of difficulty. Thus, Peter continues to write to people suffering in living for Christ, and wants to encourage them by proclaiming the holiness of God.
Peter draws out several results of a strong hope in a holy God including that one will be: 1) Preparing our battle plans, 2) Prioritizing our Piety, 3) Purifying our life, 4) Promoting our spiritual passions, and 5) Possessing God's Provisions.
The revelation of God's word concerning God's holiness is a sure and unfading truth and a power giving means that gives new life to the believer. These life giving words have been preserved in Scripture and provide a great encouragement to hope in a Holy God.
