1 Peter 4:13-14; 1 Peter 4:16; Matthew 5:12

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.


12 iRejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for jso they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
