Bible: 1 Pet 2:20-25
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. 1 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 2 committed no sin nor was deceit found in his mouth. 3 2:23 When he was maligned, he 4 did not answer back; when he suffered, he threatened 5 no retaliation, 6 but committed himself to God 7 who judges justly. 2:24 He 8 himself bore our sins 9 in his body on the tree, that we may cease from sinning 10 and live for righteousness. By his 11 wounds 12 you were healed. 13 2:25 For you were going astray like sheep 14 but now you have turned back to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.
