As Christians we committed our lives to following Christ and working for Him.  To that end, we repented of our old sinful lifestyle.  But getting rid of sin in our lives doesn’t happen overnight.  It takes study, prayer, work, and practice.
There are five things Peter said Christians should lay aside from their lives.

Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,”  1 Peter 2:1

Peter also said there are eight things Christians need in their lives.

And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.”  2 Peter 1:5-7

This thirteen-lesson workbook is intended to help you lay aside the sinful things from your life and take on the good things, with biblical knowledge and practical exercises.  In this way, we can fulfill our commitment to follow Christ and know that we are pleasing to Him.  The Bible gives Christians a clear answer as to how to be fruitful in our lives for our Master, Jesus the Christ.

For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  2 Peter 1:8
