REPAY EVIL WITH BLESSING
Be full of joy and thanksgiving that you bear Christ's name.
I Peter 3, 4 & 5
8Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for
one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous;
9not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the
8Above all things have fervent love for one another, for
"love will cover a multitude of sins." 9Be hospitable without
grumbling. 10As each one has received a gift, minister it to
one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
12Beloved, concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, do
not think some strange thing happened to you; 13but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when
His glory is revealed, you may be glad with exceeding joy.
14 If you are reproached for Christ, blessed are you, for the
Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.
17The time has come for judgment to begin at the house
of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of
those who do not obey the gospel of God?
1To the elders among you: 2Shepherd the flock of God,
serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for
dishonest gain but eagerly; 3nor as being lords over those
entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; and when
the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of
glory that does not fade away.
5Likewise younger people, submit yourselves to your elders.
Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed
with humility, for "God resists the proud, but gives grace to
the humble." 6Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty
hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7casting all
your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil
walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
9Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same
sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
10May the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory
by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect and
establish you, strengthen and settle you. 11To Him be the
glory and the dominion forever and ever.
12By Silvanus, our faithful brother, I have written to you.
13Mark my son greets you. 14Greet one another with a
kiss of love. Peace to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
