Caterpillars don't fly: but, butterflies do!
A brave new world, created by God, is available. Peter called it: "living hope" (v. 3), "inheritance" (v. 4), "salvation" (vv. 9, 10), and "glory" (v. 11). This is what God prepared for us.
Look at the very next word: "Wherefore" (v. 13). What am I gonna do about this opportunity? Peter gave several key responses: "bind the loins of the mind," "be sober," become "obedient children," "live in reverence," and "love one another extensively."
Our life with God should look like a walk with Him
