Live An Exemplary Life

11-12 Friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves cozy in it. Don’t indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then they’ll be won over to God’s side and be there to join in the celebration when he arrives.

1 Peter 2:11-12

The Message Version (MSG) 


11-12 朋友們,這個世界不是你們的家,因此不要讓自己留戀其中。不要放縱你的情慾,以致犧牲了你的靈魂。向當地人活出你生活的榜樣,用行動來矯正他們對你的偏見。你將會為神贏得他們,一同歡慶主的再來。

– 彼得前書二章11-12節
