17PURITY OF LIFE1 John 3: Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.3 And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
18Colossians 3:4-9 4. When Christ, who is our life, is Colossians 3: When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.5 Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.6 For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience,
