I'm chuckling at my diagrammed sentences. Where did Peter, rough fisherman, learn to construct such complicated essays? ...or maybe he just had so much to say he was just blurting it all out.... I had to stretch the diagramming out over three pages to see it all. But actually, after laughing, I think the diagram more accurately portrays the flow of thought, the main verbs which build off the main thought, and what is being built off of what. I don't feel so bogged down, or worse, lost and discouraged in easily wrought up wrong conclusions like "Be Perfect or forget you". In this case, the arc, because it comes to us bunched together in sound bites loses some of those tied together strands of clarity (for me anyway). What do I see? With the beautiful backdrop of the magnificence of the awe of salvation by grace given in verses 10-12 that angels even long to see, Peter now draws it all to a conclusion with "Therefore." Now surprisingly there comes only two verbs in the many chains of participial and prepositional phrases: One: "Therefore y'all hope fully!" in the imperative. Yes! given all he just told us of the plan of salvation for us by grace. It is us who get to experience this grace and hope so completely and fully; how can we keep ourselves from brimming over with awe and thankfulness and hope incomparable! But then it's time to get on with some action: second imperative verb: y'all yourselves become holy in all conduct/ behavior. How? He tells us: Gird the loins of your mind- your mind! what a good place to start.Girding --a euphenism for getting into some real action --in how one thinks, what you think in your intellect and... letting it become changed, fashioned, transformed so not in the former rotten way of thinking, but according to the "after-he-having-called-y'all" way of thinking. Hopefully we have times in our lives in this "grace which has been carried to us", that we notice how we and others are becoming (a process) "holy". He also gives the final promise,"Y'all will be holy (this is future tense, the beauty of your perfection and sinlessness has NOT fully arrived yet in its total manifestations in case you havn't noticed, so i.e. don't fret so in your weak, frail and sinful humanity) How can we be so sure that we " will be holy?" He tells us in his obvious to him reason why, 'Y'all will be holy because I , I am holy. In the meantime, one, knowing all this breathtaking unveiling, does truly become drawn. Drawn to the point of wanting to become more and more conformed, more patterned, more attuned in mind and manner to God, after such revelation and uncovering of this unveiled knowledge and salvation of our great Lord and Savior. One other note I appreciated. It was the collective "y'all" second person plural used repeatedly. Y'all hope! Y'all gird y'all minds, y'all being sober, y'all realizing the grace being carried to y'all, Y'all children, y'all becoming holy after he having called y'all. And finally the future, y'all will be holy because (changes to emphatic singular) I am holy. We're all in this together. Someday heaven is going to be a beautiful place with so many of y'alls! In the meantime, we were not meant to be solo individualistics. We don't work well as lone individuals on this journey trying (failing) to get it right. No, we need each other and the help and encouragement (and forgiveness and grace) we can give one another.
