"...pulled into a way of life..."

I need to see these verses... often. And I like the idea of being "pulled into" a way of life, rather than being "pushed into." But I need to see and hear this often, otherwise...

1 Peter 1:13-16 (the message)
So roll up your sleeves, put your mind in gear, be totally ready to receive the gift that's coming when Jesus arrives. Don't lazily slip back into those old grooves of evil, doing just what you feel like doing. You didn't know any better then; you do now. As obedient children, let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God's life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness. God said, "I am holy; you be holy."
