1 Peter 4:12-14; 1 Peter 4:16

Suffering as a Christian

12 Beloved, do not be surprised at zthe fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice ainsofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad bwhen his glory is revealed. 14 cIf you are insulted dfor the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory1 and of God rests upon you.


16 Yet eif anyone suffers as a gChristian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God din that name.
