If you are reviled in the name of Christ, you are blessed, because "the Spirit of God and of glory rests on you." Truly, according to them, He is blasphemed; but according to you, He is glorified. Isa. 11:2
For do not let any of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evildoer, or as a meddler in the affairs of others.
But if one suffers as a Christian, do not let him be ashamed, but to glorify God in this respect.
Because the time has come to begin the judgment from the house of God; and if firstly from us, what will be the end of the ones disobeying the gospel of God?
And "if the righteous is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and sinner appear?" Proverbs 11:31
So as indeed the ones suffering according to God's will, as to a faithful Creator, let them commit their souls in well-doing.
