If you are reproached for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.
But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or a wrongdoer, or a mischief-maker;
yet if one suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but under that name let him glorify God.
