Peter: Therefore, since the Messiah suffered in a mortal body,
you, too, must arm yourselves with the same determination,
because the person who has suffered in a mortal body has stopped sinning,
so that he can live the rest of his mortal life guided,
not by human desires, but by the will of God.
For you spent enough time in the past doing what the Gentiles like to do, living in sensuality, sinful desires, drunkenness, wild celebrations, drinking parties, and detestable idolatry.
They insult you now because they are surprised that you are no
longer joining them in the same excesses of wild living.
They will give an account to the one who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
