In the two previous arcs we established two attitudes which Christians should have in light of what God has done for us: praise and joy. In this passage two elements of Christian conduct are brought up: holiness and fear. The call for holiness and fear comes as a result of who God is (holy Father) and what he has done for us (ransoming up through the death of Jesus and raising him up). vv. 13-16 Peter begins by urging the believers to set their hope fully on a future event: the revelation of Jesus Christ when he returns and the grace that will be brought with it. Doing so requires an alertness and preparation of the mind. Peter goes on to encourage the believers to pursue proper Christian living, which involves being holy in all their conduct. They are not to conform to their former ways of ignorance. The source of motivation for holiness comes from God, who himself is holy and calls us to be holy as well. vv. 17-21 Bearing in mind the great price that has been paid in order to ransom us, Christians should conduct themselves with fear while they are here on earth. This fear involves having a reverence for who God is and what he has done for us, rather than being afraid of him (Jesus has already paid the price, we have reason to praise and be joyful, as we've seen earlier in chapter 1). Peter finishes by further describing what God has done through Christ, because all of these things were done so that the faith and hope of Christians would be in God and God alone.
