Bible: 1 Pet 2:19-25
2:19 For this finds God’s favor, 1 if because of conscience toward God 2 someone endures hardships in suffering unjustly. 2:20 For what credit is it if you sin and are mistreated and endure it? But if you do good and suffer and so endure, this finds favor with God. 3 2:21 For to this you were called, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving an example for you to follow in his steps. 2:22 He 4 committed no sin nor was deceit found in his mouth. 5 2:23 When he was maligned, he 6 did not answer back; when he suffered, he threatened 7 no retaliation, 8 but committed himself to God 9 who judges justly. 2:24 He 10 himself bore our sins 11 in his body on the tree, that we may cease from sinning 12 and live for righteousness. By his 13 wounds 14 you were healed. 15 2:25 For you were going astray like sheep 16 but now you have turned back to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.
