Today’s
Reading
Are You Holy?
1 Pet 1:13-16
13
Therefore,
prepare your
minds for action;
be self-controlled;
set your hope
fully on the grace
to be given you
when Jesus Christ
is revealed.
14
As obedient
children, do not
conform to the
evil desires you
had when you
lived in
ignorance.
15
But just as
he who called you
is holy, so be holy
in all you do;
16
for it is
written: "Be holy,
because I am
holy."
(NIV)

Twenty-year-old Lygon Stevens, an experienced mountaineer, had reached the summits
of Mt. McKinley, Mt. Rainier, four Andean
peaks in Ecuador, and 39 of Colorado’s highest mountains. “I climb because I love the
mountains,” she said, “and I meet God there.”
In January 2008, Lygon died in an avalanche
while climbing Little Bear Peak in southern
Colorado with her brother Nicklis, who survived.
When her parents discovered her journals,
they were deeply moved by the intimacy of
her walk with Christ. “Always a shining light
for Him,” her mother said, “Lygon experienced a depth and honesty in her relationship
with the Lord, which even seasoned veterans
of faith long to have.”
In Lygon’s final journal entry, written from
her tent 3 days before the avalanche, she said:
“God is good, and He has a plan for our lives
that is greater and more blessed than the lives
we pick out for ourselves, and I am so thankful about that. Thank You, Lord, for bringing
me this far and to this place. I leave the rest—
my future—in those same hands and say
thank You.”
Lygon echoed these words from the psalmist:
“My help comes from the Lord, who made
heaven and earth” (Ps. 121:2).
