Bible: 1 Peter 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.
