Bible: 1 Peter 4:12-16

4:12 Dear friends, do not be astonished 1  that a trial by fire is occurring among you, 2  as though something strange were happening to you. 4:13 But rejoice in the degree that you have shared in the sufferings of Christ, so that when his glory is revealed 3  you may also rejoice and be glad. 4  4:14 If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory, 5  who is the Spirit of God, 6  rests 7  on you. 4:15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer or thief or criminal or as a troublemaker. 8  4:16 But if you suffer as a Christian, 9  do not be ashamed, but glorify 10  God that you bear such a name. 11
