101As eachone has received a special gift, employ it in servingoneanother as good2stewards of the manifoldgrace of God.
113Whoeverspeaks, is to do so aas one who is speaking the 4utterances of God ; whoeverserves is to do so as one who is servingb5by the strengthwhichGodsupplies ; so that 6in allthingsGod may be glorifiedthroughJesusChrist, 7to whombelongs the glory and dominionforever and ever. Amen.
128Beloved, do not be surprised at the 9fieryordealamong you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strangething were happening to you;
but to the degree that you 10share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the 11revelation of His glory12you may rejoice with exultation.
14If you are reviledc13for the name of Christ, 14you are blessed, 15because the Spirit of glory and of Godrests on you.
15Make sure that 16none of you suffers as a murderer, orthief, orevildoer, or a d17troublesomemeddler ;
but if anyone suffers as a 18Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to 19glorifyGod in thisname.
For it is time for judgment20to beginewith 21the household of God ; and if it 22begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those23who do not obey the 24gospel of God ?
1825AND IF IT IS WITH DIFFICULTY THAT THE RIGHTEOUS IS SAVED, fWHAT WILL BECOME OF THE 26GODLESSMAN AND THE SINNER ?
19Therefore, thosealso who sufferaccording to 27the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithfulCreator in doingwhat is right.
